How to increase my Macbook's memory?

The storage space available on our computer, Mabook or iMac seems unlimited when we buy it, but those who use their Mac on a daily basis know that the storage space on their device is very limited! Many Apple devices only have 128GB of storage space and these are quickly filled up depending on how much you use your Mac. Of course, this does not mean that you should not choose a Macbook or iMac, on the contrary, they are powerful working tools and there are solutions to increase the storage capacity of your computer. For example: the MiniDrive adapter is an ideal solution to increase your storage space quickly and easily.

Why is Apple limiting the storage space of MacBooks and iMacs?

Storage on MacBook SSD and iMac

The storage space of the latest Macbooks and iMacs is becoming increasingly limited. The latest models only have 128GB of storage, so if you use your Mac on a daily basis, this space will quickly become full! However, Apple allows you to increase the capacity of your memory when you buy your MacBook. You can choose between 256GB, 512GB or 1.5TB of storage. This option is also available for the iMac. Apple guarantees that with this extra storage space, your MacBook or iMac will continue to work quickly. So you can individually choose the amount of storage on your device, but unfortunately: the more memory you add, the more expensive your Mac will be. Not all MacBook or iMac buyers pay attention to the size of their storage space, they are often looking for an attractive price!

What if I've already bought my MacBook?

Once you have purchased your device, expanding your Mac's SSD drive is even more expensive. Plus, if you choose this solution, you have to integrate a new SSD drive into the design of your Mac and that's no easy task! However, if you opt for external storage, you can solve this problem more quickly and cheaply.

Where can I find the available space on my Macbook?

Is your computer slower than usual and are you worried that your storage space is full? You can check your available memory by checking the storage overview. Go to your Apple menu >> click "About this Mac" >> then "Storage".

Here you will find an overview of the available storage space:

How do I increase the memory of my Macbook or iMac?

There are many ways to increase the storage space on your Mac, even if you don't want to install a new drive. An external drive that increases the size of your storage space is a practical, flexible and low-cost solution!

External hard drive for MacBook and iMac

Additional capacity varies depending on the size of your hard drive, up to 1TB of additional storage is easily available. This solution can be expensive depending on the storage capacity you want, but it is a practical solution. However, it should be taken into account that an external hard drive is not light or small, so it is ideal for working at home or in the office, but it is not really practical to carry around.

iCloud for MacBook and iMac

Apple offers you the possibility to store your data in the iCloud. This data is then available everywhere simply with your Apple ID. The advantage of the iCloud is that you do not need an additional device. However, you do need an Internet connection to use iCloud.

SD card for MacBook and iMac

An SD card is a compact and flexible solution that offers you additional memory/storage capacity. You can choose SD cards individually, depending on how many GB you want to have. There are many different prices and sizes of SD cards, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs. The advantage of an SD card? An SD card is lightweight and can be taken anywhere.

But an SD card also has some disadvantages, which are especially noticeable if you travel a lot and don't use your MacBook on the go. Indeed, the SD card is always on the move on your MacBook or iMac computer and this is not really practical. That's why we have an even better solution: the MiniDrive adapter.

What is a MiniDrive adapter and what are its advantages?

You can use a MiniDrive adapter in combination with a micro SD card. The advantage over a standard SD card is the size and shape of the MiniDrive adapter. The MiniDrive fits perfectly into the SD card reader of your MacBook or iMac and does not stand out because of the aluminium front. This makes the adapter inconspicuous and a practical solution!

With your MiniDrive adapter, your extra memory can remain permanently in your MacBook or iMac without the card being noticeable or annoying. The adapter is especially useful if you travel a lot and don't want to take a heavy hard drive with you or always have to remove an SD card because it stays outside your Mac.

Which memory card for your Macbook?

MiniDrive MacBook Air, Pro and iMac

The MiniDrive for MacBook and iMac is a special micro SD adapter that makes it easy to add memory to your MacBook or iMac. The adapter is built in the classic aluminium design of the Mac and therefore does not stand out!
