Right now it’s only 60 bucks off at 109 bucks but it will do 2.36 gb per sec (I have one) and if you’re just patient and check that link I sent every day for the next few days you’ll get it for about $90 I paid 89 bucks for mine last week.

> For a time machine back up what size hard drive would you recommend?

Depends on what size SSD you got with your MBA. The general rule of thumb is to get something at least twice the size of the drive to be backed up — so, if you got 256gb, then 500-512mb would be okay; if you got the 512gb, then 1tb would be advisable.

Most people will recommend an SSD like the Samsung T5 or T7 for your external drive(s), and I’d agree — for the one for files/apps. I’ve used both, and they’re great. (Though which one may depend on your use case. If you write to the drive a lot, the T5 may be a better choice because it has DRAM while the T7/T7 Touch are DRAMless.)

For the Time Machine drive, though, SSD may be overkill and an HDD like a WD Passport or Seagate Touch would be fine, and cheaper than the SSD. If you plan to be rough on the TM drive or use it in motion a lot, though, the SSD might be a better choice since it has no moving parts.

Me personally, I use the Samsung T7 1tb for files/apps on my MBA, and a WD Passport 1tb for Time Machine backups.

From a guy’s perspective. Get ready for a long read.

  1. Emergency money. (~$200)
  2. Toiletries: Don’t forget extra razor blades!
  3. Tylenol/First Aid Kit/Ibuprofen/Aspirin (Just in case you hurt yourself. Fell off my bike and also injured my hand. btw I recommend Bengay Pain Relief Cream. For the latter, the pain was so bad that Advil didn’t help)
  4. Laptop accessories! #Donglelife. Make sure you have an HDMI port handy for presentations. Also get yourself a USB drive, or get the Samsung T7 Portable SSD, packs up to 2TB of fast storage. It’s on sale now! It comes in pretty colors. There’s also a fingerprint reader one, but it costs more.
  5. Bike accessories. Locks + Helmet + LIGHTS! DON’T FORGET YOUR LIGHTS! Cops love pulling bicyclists over for not having lights. Moreover, lights are important for your safety, especially when riding at night, as some spots on campus are super dark. I use a cheap rear red light, and a decent super bright white front light, which can be used separately as a flashlight. It’s got 4 modes (dim, bright, strobe, S.O.S) Remember that California state law says that helmets are optional above 18, so tell that to a dirty cop if he pulls you over.
  6. Old Textbooks. Now, you can download them for free off the UCSD Textbook sharing FB page, but some profs use the same book as high school teachers (Like AP Physics and Phys 2C. Both of them used my high school textbook, HRW Fundamentals of Physics) This is particularly true of lower-div courses in the natural sciences.
  7. Food. Some heat and eat/rice/CUP NOODLES/something else. I didn’t go home during Thanksgiving, and ALL places on campus were closed early (afaik). Luckily, my surplus food saved me. (Belvitas, Quaker Oatmeal, etc. etc.)
  8. Seat cushion. My ass was sore without one. I used a type-S car seat cushion from Costco.
  9. A fan (Costco)
  10. Limited dinnerware. A couple pots/pans. (Ikea!) Rice cooker etc.
  11. A knife. Besides chopping veggies, knives can be surprisingly useful. I had many instances where a knife came in handy, including saving my phone (beach sand in lightning port).
  12. Some sorta lockable suitcase and a cable lock to secure the suitcase to a bed/immovable object. This will be your “safe.” I kept all my bank documents, emergency cash etc locked up in one. The suitcase in turn was locked to my bedframe (metal, so it couldn’t be cut easily) using a Kryptonite cable lock. This breaks the rules, so keep it discreet. Mine was hidden behind rows of boxes beneath my bed.
  13. Combo locks (MasterLock) + chains (Home depot). Might be overkill, but I used them to to lock my dresser drawer.
  14. Rainy weather gear.
  15. iClicker.
  16. Keychain.
  17. Basketball/Instrument.
  18. Giant plastic bins to keep yourself organized.

Microwave: You can pool money to buy one, or get your own. I think you get a fridge if you live in the apartments, but idk.

*For the girls, obviously pads and other heavy weapons you need to fight those terrible few days of the month.

Welcome to UCSD!
