Today’s Macbooks are speedy, but Apple isn’t totally generous with storage space. Your Mac drive can quickly become cramped if you have gigabytes of photos or movies you want to store.

You could lug an external hard drive around, but that seems to defeat the point of owning such a svelte laptop. The Nifty MiniDrive solves this issue.

This microSD card adapter slots into your Macbook and adds up to 200 GB without additional bulk. It’s specifically engineered for use with the Macbook Air 13″, Macbook Pro, and Macbook Pro Retina 13″/15″, meaning you’re virtually covered no matter your Mac laptop of choice.

Worried about aesthetics? The MiniDrive is designed to seamlessly blend in with your Mac. It doesn’t protrude when you insert it, and its aluminum casing seamlessly matches your Mac’s. Unless you’re an Apple fiend who’s memorized the ins and outs of your Macbook ports, you wouldn’t even know the MiniDrive were there.

We can keep waxing poetic about the adapter’s other features, like how it works with any brand of microSD card, or is fully compatible with Time Machine to facilitate daily backups. But the best way to really understand its benefits is to see for yourself.

Through the Daily Dot store, you can get the Nifty Minidrive now for $33.99, or 15 percent off. The price includes free shipping to the U.S.–so nab this deal before time runs out.
