TarDisk

I recently stumbled upon a device called Tardisk. Essentially it is a storage expansion module that fits seamlessly with your laptop. So instead of a flash drive, SD card, or external hard drive that juts out and becomes a hassle when moving your laptop, you have something that is out of sight and fast and effective.

Right now, I think they're working on expanding it to 256GB of extra storage space. That's an incredible amount. Plus it's waterproof and shockproof. I'm sold.

Available for Macs and PCs.

What do you think?

I only see these for MACs & they're EXPENSIVE.

You wouldn't be spamming now, would you?

PC will be released soon

They just opened a kickstarter for PC versions as well. Where are you finding the Mac ones? Are they available outside of their website?

Only two reviews at Amazon
Amazon. Expensive too. I'd wait a year at least, let it be proven first.

Nothing new there. Example.

Thanks

This was helpful. Is there anything similar though for PCs? I have a Lenovo Yoga and wanted to expand the storage space on it since it only came with 128gb.

Thanks!

It's the same device for WIndows.

Thanks

What can I buy to upgrade my Lenovo Yoga 2? As I understand, it has an unusual connector which the full-size SSDs may not have.
I appreciate your help

Let's research that.

There are a few Yoga 2's now. http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/upgrade-ssd-for-yoga-2-pro.753586/ notes the usual mSATA2 drive.

http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-512GB-mSATA-Internal-CT512M550SSD3/dp/B00IRRDJ9C has 3 sizes and there are more on the web. Even the 512GB is cheaper than the Tardisk.

I'd get an APRICOM to ease the upgrade.

I think it's a scamp.

It looks like an SD cartridge to me.

Looks like poor value to me.

Look up to see where you can do better for the original poster's laptop.
