OWC has unveiled a new upgrade that will allow anyone with a Mac Book Air to add even more speed to the already nippy ultra book. The new OWC Aura Express 6G 480GB Solid State Disk has been created to add not only 8x more storage capacity for the MacBook Air, but also add up to 3x faster performance as well.
As you can expect the extra performance and speed comes at a price. The Mercury Aura Pro Express 6G 480GB model is priced at a massive $1,149 and is now available directly from OWC.
OWC’s 480GB SSD will perform best in the latest 11.1″ and 13.3″ Apple MacBook Air models, incorporating 6Gb/sec data rate capabilities and Tier 1/Grade A Toggle Synchronous NAND to deliver data rates.
OWC explains: “Whether you’re looking for storage capacity up to 8x the factory maximum or extreme data rate speeds over 500MB/s, an OWC Mercury Aura Pro Express SSD is the ultimate MacBook Air performance upgrade.”
If this model is a little highly priced for your budget OWV also stocks 120GB and 240GB providing alternatives to factory SSD options for the MacBook Air models. More information can be found over on the OWC website
