    I'm a little confused about this. Can these cards work without an adapter? Do these adapters (Minidrive, Atopop ) work only with particular kinds of sd cards?

    I'm wanting to get 64 or 128gigs of additional storage for my Air, but not sure what I need/should get.

    Thanks!

    SD cards plug into the 13" Air as they are, but stick out about half an inch. What the MiniDrive and stuff do is basically be a stubby Micro-SD (the sort that go in phones) to SD adapter, meaning they can plug into the side of the Air and not stick out. :)

    Thanks! Do any of the cards fit into these adapters, or does it have to be a particular size etc?

    The flush adapters take micro sd cards.

    Thanks. I'm wanting 128 gigs. But it's looking like they only come in regular sd size, not micro. Anybody seen a 128gig micro size sd?

    Did you find any on your searches of sites that sell them, e.g., Amazon?
