    Is there anyway to format the USB drive that apple gave you for your MacBook airs? I think it's a good looking flash drive but I'm having a hard time getting an answer. Also what is the official name for it, so I can look it up on eBay. All I want to do is format it to use as a regular flashdrive. I don't want to steal OS X and I know they have that set up to where you can't.

    The same principles apply:
    Format Your Hard Drive Using Disk Utility
    Partition Your Hard Drive With Disk Utility

    from the User Guide, also included in printed form with the MBA

    Apple's official answer is "no".
