    The SD cards are a lot smaller, and they don't stick out of the MBA. If it's just sitting on a desk, an external USB drive makes more sense. Otherwise, on the road an SD card is a lot more mobile friendly.

    Let us know what you buy and how you like it.

    There are some USB flash drives that are as small as the one bundled with MBA which don't really stick out (e.g. Super Talent Pico and Verbatim Tuff-'N'-Tiny). Might be a bit cheaper than SD cards and also compatible with pretty much any product. I think they are also faster than SD cards. I've been thinking about getting one if/when I run out of space in my MBA.

    That reminds me of a cool key type USB drive I have seen that fits on the key ring and is small like the Apple USB OS X stick.

    Not true! The SD does stick out of the MBA. Only about half of it sits inside the computer, the other half remains visible.
