New 2012 Macs Means New OWC SSD Designs

In my earlier post, I mentioned that the new 2012 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 15″ Retina machines are now using two new, different SSD slot designs/connectors not used previously. Here’s a few pictures of the new connectors, compared to the one previously used.


While our current Aura Pro Express SSDs are NOT compatible with these new machines, we ARE full steam ahead on bringing new models to market that will feature these new connectors.

Of course, the other new MacBook Pros announced yesterday, the 13″ and 15″ non-Retina Display models, will continue to utilize traditional 2.5″ SATA SSDs like our Mercury Electra 6G and Mercury Extreme Pro 6G. You can also install a couple of hard disk drives using the OWC Data Doubler (up to 1TB each) for a 2TB total…and if that’s your magic capacity number….here’s a future product teaser….with the OWC Data Doubler, you’ll  soon be able to hit that level of internal storage capacity with OWC SSDs!
