          If you are drawn to the elegance of the MacBook Air, this back-up drive is for you. It is very compact, has a quality feel, fast usb3, and comes with a soft case to boot. I partioned mine 250GB for Time Machine and 750GB for general storage. Cheers!

              I use the Passport Air to backup my iMAC. As soon as I connected it, the backup began. It was long at all to backup and it works well with Time Machine. It is a simple elegant piece of equipment. The only negative is the instructions or really, the lack of instructions. But I figured it out. Would recommend this product.
