OWC offering 480GB SSD upgrade for 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro
Storage: We all want more of it, but not only that, we also want it to be as fast as possible. If the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is on your wish list but your wallet can't handle the 512GB SSD upgrade from the factory, Other World Computing may have what you're looking for. The company is offering its Mercury Aura Pro 480GB SSD replacement for $579.99.
By comparison, a 512GB SSD boost adds a cool $800 to the bottom line when configuring the new MacBook from Apple. OWC also offers installation service for $80, plus shipping, as well as data transfer to the new SDD for an additional $40.
To further reinforce its value proposition, OWC is launching a portable SSD enclosure in December which will allow those who upgrade to use their 128GB factory SSD as an added external drive.
