If you’ve found that your MacBook Air’s SSD is just too darn small, the folks over at Other World Computing have a kit to help you replace it with a larger one — and then turn the old one into a super-portable external drive.
Dear Lifehacker, I’m putting together a computer and really want to get an SSD like you guys keep telling me to, but they’re just so expensive. I can probably afford a 60GB SSD or smaller, but that seems too small to fit anything on — even without my user folder, my current C: drive takes up nearly 70GB. Is it even possible to make use of an SSD this small? Sincerely, Starved for Space
