Professional 480GB Solid State Drive with Upgrade Kit for 2012 MacBook Air
This Professional SSD provides Mac users an upgrade solution that delivers higher performance, functionality, and reliability! The OWC Aura 6G gives you the freedom to upgrade your capacity to meet your storage needs.
The Complete 2-in-1 Upgrade Solution: Upgrade your MBA's factory installed SSD with greater performance and capacity with the Aura Pro 6G SSD. Re-task the replaced factory SSD as a bus-powered, pocket-sized external storage solution using the Envoy Pro.
To achieve the higher bandwidth potential of the SATA 6Gb/s bus standard, the OWC Aura Pro 6G SSDs utilise Tier-1 Synchronous NAND instead of commonly utilised Asynchronous NAND. Synchronous NAND enables reads and writes to be "synced" with the SSD processor's clock signal for maximum data throughput.
