Very cool device that fits inside the card reader slot of your Mac laptop to add 128 Gb of storage (it sits flush with your MacBook, you can barely even tell it is there).
Simply insert JetDrive Lite into the card reader slot on the side of your MacBook and instantly boost your storage capacity.
You need to select your laptop version so my guess is you can’t use one card for both a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro (or between some versions of MacBook Pro that have different JetDrive Lite versions).
It is compatible back to late 2010 MacBook Air 13 inch so I am buying one for my old MacBook Air. Buying via Amazon a 128 Gb version is only $80 (at least right now), list price is $120. Currently it is back-ordered for 2-4 weeks.
I would include a way to lookup the production date of your laptop if I were selling these but they didn’t do so (maybe they will be smart and update the page to do so). You can use this Apple page to determine the production date of your MacBook.
Another similar product, PNY StorEDGE 128 Gb is $75 from Amazon ($200 list price – it is a bit older so likely price to places like Amazon has dropped, even if they didn’t lower the list price, since the release).

I have been using the JetDrive on my old MacBook Air for a month now; it is great.
I had some initial issues and email support was fine (it wasn’t super fast a day or more?) but that was fine with me. It recognized the drive but wouldn’t let me save to it.
In the end (first a couple other things were tried) I guess it was just dust. Removing the card and blowing into the slot and reinserting the card worked.
