It has not been much time since the new 2010 MacBook Air range was launched, and already we see a brilliant and much needed upgrade for the Apple notebook. Japanese company PhotoFast has become the first to offer a storage upgrade solution in the form of its GM2 SFV1 Air for the 11-inch Air. This product will provide an additional 256GB of SSD storage to the Air (something which even Apple doesn’t have on offer as part of an upgrade option) and in a convenient narrow card format that saves space and is extremely mobile.
The GM2 SFV1 Air uses a SandForce SF1200 memory controller and provides data transfer speeds of a peak 250MB per second for both read and write. The upgrade kit also consists of a USB 3.0 adapter shell which makes for portability and ease of use of the SSD storage. Although no pricing has been revealed, PhotoFast has mentioned that the kits will also be available in capacities of 64GB and 128GB.
The pricing and availability are not known yet, but we would like to see likewise accessories for PCs as well. Upgradable or not, the notebooks might get that emergency kind of storage with the Photofast.
