    Hi all, I am new to the mac world. I recently bought a late 13 rMBP 15.4" 8gb/256. I am looking at getting a PNY Flash Memory Expansion Module 128GB. What I want to know is this:
    I already purchased and installed parallels on my mac, and I have windows 7 running on it. I am a little concerned about space on my hdd. Can I use the above mentioned module and put the windows on it? Even better, is there a way to "move" the current windows installation and all the software I have installed over to it?

    How will it perform as far as speed?

    That Memory Card will basically work like an external drive. The only windows which can be installed on an external drive without much hassle is AFAIK Windows 8

    Thank you for the info. I ordered one today and should have it Wednesday. I will use it for storage purposes. That should ease my internal capacity.

    Windows 10 also runs off an external under Parallels.
