Not that I know of. Does your MacBook Air have Thunderbolt? If so, I'd suggest a Thunderbolt drive. Speed will not be an issue.

Another alternative: get a hybrid HD. This will perform exactly as you are asking for, giving you almost the full speed of an SSD with the storage capacity and price of an HDD. I am looking at one on Amazon (a Seagate) that is a 1TB 2.5" with 8GB of NAND for $120. Put a portable case on that and I think you're in business.
