OWC Drive Upgrades Offer Bigger Capacities, Higher Performance, and Longer Warranties
Apple’s MacBook and MacBook Pro models have shipped standard with drive capacities as low as 60GB, with the recently announced new models offering as little as 160GB drive capacity. The wider selection of drives available from OWC enables MacBook and MacBook Pro owners to select the drive that best meets their needs. Offering bigger capacity and higher performance, OWC’s drive upgrades often cost far less than similar options installed at the factory, as well as offering a longer warranty. In addition, MacBook and MacBook Pro owners that purchase a new drive from OWC also enjoy the benefit of keeping their existing drive, which can be used as a temporary backup drive, converted into an external storage solution, or sent to OWC for a cash back trade-in.
