SD Card Reader 11"

Question: Is there an SD card reader accessary I can buy for the 11" Air?

In a way, I hope not. I really don't need this computer, but for the past few days I've been itching to do some unnecessary tech. shopping.

Thanks,
-anthony

+1. The fact that it is for an 11.6" Air is irrelevant.

I have an old SD Card reader that must be 4 years old that works fine with my 11" Air.

What a seriously cool adapter, perfect. Here's hoping I don't end up losing it somewhere though!

I've had my 11" MacBook Air for about 2 weeks now, and I purchased this USB SD card reader from Newegg, and it was really inexpensive. ($6.99)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820223088



If you search Newegg for USB SD card readers, you can see other ones, going as low as $4.50, but I got this one because it had the best reviews. I've only been able to try it once since I haven't taken many pictures, but it worked perfectly that one time I tried it.

I'd recommend looking at EyeFi cards too ( http://uk.eye.fi/ ).

It's an SD card with built-in wifi. As soon as you're close to a pre-set WiFi network (like your home network) it connects and transfers the images to the computer wirelessly. No need for a card reader at all, or even taking the card out from the camera. Can't comment on how well it works, didn't try it, but looks like a very sweet solution.

That EyeFi card would be awesome too if it can be attached to an AdHoc network, as long as you had your laptop with you broadcasting the network you would never run out of space on the camera!
