3 This SD card-sized so­lu­tion for dou­bling a MacBook’s in­ter­nal stor­age ca­pac­ity is in­ge­nious. The alu­minium disk slides into the MacBook‘s SDXC card slot to sit flush with the uni­body en­clo­sure. It then mounts as a sec­ondary drive in Finder, en­abling you to drag over files or set it up as an on-board Time Ma­chine drive. It’s when you spend an ex­tra £13 on the ‘Pear’ vari­ant that it gets really in­ter­est­ing. That fuses with your ex­ist­ing SSD to cre­ate a sin­gle log­i­cal vol­ume in the Finder for a ca­pac­ity boost with­out you hav­ing to think about which drive you stored files on. Tim Hard­wick An al­most-per­fect so­lu­tion to the peren­nial MacBook prob­lem of non-up­grade­able in­ter­nal stor­age.
