Macbook Air comes with Software Reinstall USB drive!

One of the smaller, however still noteworthy, details that were released during Apple’s “Back to the Mac” event was the fact that the new MacBook Air Models now ships with a stylish USB drive for software re-installation duties, the reasoning behind this being the lack of an optical drive on the Macbook Air.

The USB drive can’t be erased, or re-formated, storage comes up at around 8GB, of which 7.5GB is used for the OS X and iLife installers. As you can see above the device is really small, smaller in fact than most normal USB drives.

While the Air can still use a remote optical drive, as well as take advantage of the external Air SuperDrive, we are certain that this free accessory will come in handy for those late night software emergencies when friendly computers and Apple Stores are nowhere in sight.
