Yes, provided you have charged your MacBook 12". When the drive is connected, it will draw power from the port, and therefore it will use your Macbook's battery's charge. If you plan to transfer a lot to/from the drive in any one sitting, it can be a real nuisance because you need to ensure you have lots of battery remaining in your MacBook before you start.

I don't know what year your Macbook is but this drive gets power from the USB port and can be used without a power supply.
