More Space

I just got the 11' MacBook Air and I have 64 GB of space. I really need more space as my last computer had lots more. I have considered purchasing a new SSD but they are expensive. Then, I saw a post on these forums, saying that if a person needed more space they could just get a SD card. I thought this was a great idea, except I don't want to have to plug something in every time I want to access a file I would store on it. Is there anyway to get an internal SD card to add space? Thank You.

No. Your best bet is to sell it and get the 13" mba which does have a SD slot

No offense but why would you buy a 64 GB MBA when you knew you had more stuff than what would fit on it? And did you not realize the 11 inch air does not come with an SD slot? Sounds like you didn't do your homework before making this purchase

Buy an external HDD, that's what I did. A 2TB Seagate Backup drive. I already filled 250GB of the external and 100GB of the internal SSD, but I just didn;t want to spend more on the 256GB SSD upgrade.

Once I will fill the 2TB I gonna get another 3TB external drive. Should that one fill up I will get another one after that with 4, 6, 10 or whatever GB size will be available at that time.

You bought the incorrect configuration for your needs and are now seeking bandaid approaches to correct that error. I agree with the comment advising you to sell it and buy what you need.
