Upgrade the storage in your MacBook Air
Once again, OWC provides Mac users an upgrade path that delivers higher performance, functionality, and reliability! With the 2012 base model 11" MacBook Air only offering a 64GB flash module and the base 13" model offering just a 128GB flash module, installing an Aura Pro 6G flash module can increase storage capacity up to 16X higher!
Now thanks to OWC and the Aura Pro SSD line, you can buy the MacBook Air you want today and enjoy higher performance whenever you're ready to upgrade. OWC's Aura Pro SSD provides up to nearly 16x the capacity of your MacBook Air's factory SSD, while offering faster performance.
Better by Design
Aura Pro 6G SSD for MacBook Air 2012 is designed and built with premium tier-1 NAND flash. OWC SSDs are engineered to be the best for Mac, undergoing a rigorous 7-stage lab testing process to deliver absolute reliability at maximum performance long into the future.
Synchronous Interface NAND
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.
