Beyond a new portable hard drive or a USB-C stick, there aren't all that many ways of getting a boost in storage for your MacBook. An SD card is a great alternative for getting some extra storage that also saves loads of physical space.
That’s a measly $0.12 per GB!

This SD card is the cheapest way to upgrade your Mac's storage on the fly, and of course, because they're small you can buy several and swap them in and out as you need. You could have one for photos, videos, music, games, and more!
Still, as a self-respecting tech fan, this is likely a handy deal whatever handset you’re rocking. Whether you’re boosting a DSLR’s photo capacity, expanding the recording capabilities of a security camera, or indeed plugging this into the side of your Mac, $0.12 per gigabyte, for a card with respectable 120MB/s transfer speeds, is a deal you shouldn’t miss.
Don't worry about getting an adapter either — the card comes with one on the box that will jam straight into the SD card reader on your MacBook Pro.
