Hello all I have been trying to Find a Solution for the Limited Storage on my MBA. I purchased the 128gb SSD Version and I want to Purchase a 32-64GB Flash Drive for my School work and a few Programs.. I have been looking at this Drive Here (http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/a6d9/). I have read reports that the Insert is to Thick and It bends the Tab on the inside of the USB Port. Anyone Else have these drives? Can anyone Contest to this. I have only seen a few articles on amazon but wanted the opinions from a few Possible Experts. Thanks a ton.:cool:

I have one of these already. The thumb drive will be for multiple computers. Just trying to make sure it's not gonna damage my USB port.

How did you do that? They only ship in December.

They were probably one of the early backers. Those who backed the project early on got them already.

Try B0028R3NCU -- I have been using this without known adverse effects for a couple of years. Doesn't quite break the bank either :-)

(It's only SDHC though, so limited to 32 GB.)

Yes.
Micro SD, actually (but nobody remembers SD Mini).
