I'm not terribly familiar with SD cards: according to their wikipedia page there are SD cards, mini SD, micro SD, SDHC, SDXC, etc... I'm wondering what version my pi needs.
To make things a little more complicated, I only have a MacBook Pro laptop, so I'd need to (if this is possible) burn the Raspbian image onto the SD card from my Mac...and it doesn't look like my Mac has any SD slots (I see HDMI, USB and the Mac dongle ports though). Does anybody know if Apple makes any dongles/converters that would allow me to attach my SD card to it?
Basically I'm wondering what hardware setup I'll need for my Mac and what type of SD card I'll need to work with my pi model.
