Over recent years, Apple has slowly phased out optical drives from its Mac lineup. In fact, the non-Retina MacBook Pro is the only Mac that currently ships with an optical drive. And even if you have a MacBook Pro with an optical bay, you can choose to add a second drive in its place via the OWC Data Doubler with some models.

But owning a Mac without an internal optical drive or opting for more storage and performance with the OWC Data Doubler plus a second hard drive or SSD doesn’t mean you can’t still get the benefits from an optical drive. And luckily, OWC has the right solution for your optical needs! Article Continues…

Use Your FireWire Gear With A New Mac

firewire-whipSince the introduction of Thunderbolt as a port in 2011 Macs, Apple has slowly phased out its previous high-speed connection, FireWire. Now, with the release of the Late 2013 Mac Pro, only one shipping Mac model – the Mac mini – still has this connection.

While Thunderbolt promises even faster throughput and simplified connectivity, the loss of the FireWire port may leave the many users who upgrade their Mac – but still have useful legacy FireWire external hard drives and other peripherals – out in the cold. Luckily, OWC has the solutions you need to maximize your FireWire investment.

The Apple Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter enables you to easily connect up to 63 externally powered FireWire 800 devices to your Thunderbolt port-equipped computer. The FireWire 800 port even provides up to 7W of power for your bus-powered external hard drive solution needs.
