The PNY StorEDGE is a flash memory card that fits in the SDXC slot of the 13-inch MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Pro with Retina display and provides extra storage without the extra weight or bulk of a traditional USB hard drive or even USB thumb drive. Unlike other solutions that you plug in, use and then unplug, the StoreEDGE is designed to remain in the slot. Just slide it in and forget about it.
“This convenient new product produces a hassle-free option for consumers to easily upgrade the amount of storage available to their MacBook,” said Myra Hines, senior marketing manager at PNY. “Once plugged in, StorEdge appears as an additional drive on your computer; allowing for easy access, convenient drag and drop, and searchable content through finder. With no installation required, users have the added benefit of not having to worry about unplugging or disconnecting, as they would with other storage devices. StorEdge is ideal for MacBook users seeking more storage while keeping their notebook – and their priceless information – ultraportable.”
The small size and convenience comes at a premium price though. The PNY StorEdge is $99.99 for 64GB and $199.99 for 128GB. They are available now from retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy, as well as PNY.com
