If small size is the priority and you have a 2012 Apple laptop, you should consider using an SD card as your jump drive. That’s because the fastest SDHC card on the newest laptops is more than twice as fast as the same SD card in the SD slot of the 2011 and older Apple laptops.
Using an SD card for storage, it’s so ‘derr Mat’that I hadn’t considered this as an option to increase the capacity on my MacBook Air which is rapidly running out of space due to the number of projects and things I’m working on.
It also solves a big problem for us on what movies and TV shows to sync to the kids iPad prior to going on holidays next month.
