usb bus powered drive and macbook air. y cable?????
mine shipped 1.8 with ssd. yeah!
anyone know if... a usb 2.0 bus powered hard drive will work with it? some posts on amazon seem to think that you need a usb y cable to get enough power. that would of course mean no for the air. however i'm wondering if the souped up usb 2.0 outlet for the superdrive will do it for me.

You should be fine. I have a USB bus-powered HD with a Y-cable, but never need to connect the second plug (this is on a 17" MBP). As I understand it, the Air has higher current capability than standard due to the requirements of the external optical drive, so it shouldn't break a sweat with the average external USB housing.
11" MacBook air 2012 i5 4gb/ 128gb - 17" unibody MBP C2D 2.8Gz / 4gb / 500gb - 20" iMac 2ghz C2D / 4gb/ 2tb - iPad 3 32gb wifi/3G - iPhone 5 16gb
