Did you find little, the maximum 128GB of the new 11.6-inch MacBooks Air, or do you consider the Toshiba controller too slow? Do you need a USB 3.0 compatible USB stick? Not to be so: the Japanese firm PhotoFast today presented a kit that solves these "problems" at once.
The product consists of a 256GB SSD module for the new 11.6 ? MacBooks Air, promising speeds of up to 250MB / s for reading and writing, thanks to a SandForce SF-1200 controller. That means 30% more than Apple's own estimates.
In addition to the solid state drive itself, the GM2 SFV1 Air comes with a housing that contains a USB 3.0 adapter: so you take the "old" SSD from Air, install it on that adapter and go! A giant and super-fast USB stick will be at your disposal. It is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 (so that you can use it before switching, to copy your data via USB), but you can use the full speed of the SSD for fast data exchange on computers compatible with the new standard.
PhotoFast has yet to reveal pricing for the solution, but has already promised to launch 64GB and 128GB models as well.
Update (s 14h20)
We adjusted the text to reflect the correct features of the GM2 SFV1 Air. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and dream a lot about something that brings USB 3.0 ports for Macs.
