Big And Fast SDXC Cards For MacBook Pro & Air

For top performance, the latest generation of Class 10 SDHC / SDXC cards for MacBook Air or Pro use the most intelligent and fastest flash memory chips which can peak out at 100MB/Sec or higher transfer rates. They're deal for use as a Mac backup drive, a bootable SD card for Mac OSX diagnostics and emergency startup - or fast transfers of large video files and tons of photos.

Custom Low-Profile SD Cards For MacBooks

These specially designed Secure-Digital memory cards unique to specific MacBook Pro or Air models are low-profile and specifically sized to fit nearly flush on a Mac laptop's SDHC - SDXC card slot without sticking out very much so that you can just leave the SD card in place on the go. Look at Transcend's JetDrive Lite SD cards, they were custom made for specific years and models of MacBook Pro and Air laptops from 2010-2017.

Only select models of aluminum Apple MacBook models even had an SD slot. No 11-inch, but some 13-inch MacBook Air models included one. As of 2015, the professional series of Retina 13-inch and 15-inch Retina laptops updated specs to include a SDXC slot (which is compatibile with smaller or slower SD and SDHC cards regardless.)

Apple's affair with SD slots has ebbed and subsided, then reemerged over the years. With the 2022 M1 Mac Studio desktop computer Apple placed an SDXC slot right on the front of Macintosh's case for the first time.
