Other World Computing Expands Industry’s Only SSD Upgrade Solution for Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display Computers

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013 | Author:

Other World Computing announced today its OWC Aura Pro, the industry’s only high-performance Solid State Drive upgrade for all 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pro with Retina display (rMBP) computers, is now available in a 240GB capacity that offers up to 2x the capacity of the factory base SSD found in the 13″ rMBP model.

A Better Upgrade Value Than Factory Option

The 13″ rMBP comes standard with a 128GB SSD and it costs $300 to upgrade at the factory to a 256GB SSD. However, when upgrading directly with the factory, consumers have paid for that base 128GB module, but do not get that original base flash module returned to them for re-use.

The OWC Aura Pro SSD and Envoy Pro enclosure bundle comes complete with installation tools, installation video, and offers comparable cost and capacity — $319.99 and 240GB (256GB SSD before 7% over-provisioning) — to the factory 256GB upgrade option, but with the added value of being able to use the factory base SSD module as an external storage device via the Envoy Pro.
