So I now have the new 11 inch Mac Air. I await patiently the arrival of our RED SSD USB3 reader so I can assess file transfer speed to 2 portable 1TB Thunderbolt drives. Ultra light. Hoping it's much faster than the FW800 solution I've been using until now.
Apple didn't have any 1TB Thunderbolts in store so I'm trying the Seagate FW800 with Thunderbolt adapter that slots into the base of the HDD.
Anyone doing the same?
I have the Macbook Pro 17 inch too but don't really look at the footage while shooting (apart from the first take or two of the day). So I went into the Apple store just looking for the fastest dump down solution in the smallest form factor. It feels as light as the Ipad. Quite exciting really!
