OWC Announces Mercury Aura Pro Express and Aura Envoy SSD Enclosure Bundles
Other World Computing (OWC), a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced today the OWC Mercury Aura Pro Express/Mercury Aura Envoy as the industry's first high-performance Solid State Drive upgrade and bus-powered enclosure bundle for 2010-2011 MacBook Air computers. Representing a 'Dream Team' of performance and convenience, the Mercury Aura Bundle includes a Mercury Aura Pro Express SSD that offers nearly 8x the factory maximum storage capacity along with extreme data rate speeds up to or exceeding 500 MB/s - representing up to 68 percent faster real-world speed than the factory Flash SSD. After installing the Aura Pro Express in the MacBook Air, the factory SSD is easily converted into an external storage solution inside the Mercury Aura Envoy to complete the two-in-one storage upgrade.
Faster and Bigger Than Factory SSD
By combining award-winning SandForce technologies and Tier 1/Grade A NAND, OWC Mercury Aura Pro Express SSDs are built to exceed the factory SSD in both speed and capacity. Available in 3Gb/s speeds for the 2010 MacBook Air models and 6Gb/s speeds for the 2011 models, the Aura Pro Express gives MacBook Air owners bigger drive options...up to 480GB for up to 8x greater storage capacity versus original factory SSDs.
Re-tasks the Factory SSD as New External Drive
After watching OWC's free how-to-install Aura Pro Express video showing this upgrade performed in 15 minutes, MacBook Air owners then re-task the factory SSD as a high-performance external drive with the Mercury Aura Envoy. As the industry's only bus-powered (no AC adapter needed) external drive designed specifically for the MacBook Air, the Envoy's tapered, 1.5 ounce aluminum housing complements the MacBook Air's unique shape. No lightweight in the performance department, the Envoy's USB 3.0 interface provides real-world data rates of over 200MB/s with original Apple MBA SSDs for high speed, portable backup and file storage as well as grab-and-go enjoyment of music, movies or videos.
Seven Bundles Available from $199.99 MSRP
The Mercury Aura Bundle comes complete with three installation tools and is available for immediate ordering in both 3G and 6G speeds with up to 480GB storage capacity:
"The Mercury Aura Bundle continues our streak of first-to-market with performance upgrades for the MacBook Air," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. "This potent, two-upgrades-in-one 'dream team' solution truly takes 2010 and 2011 MacBook Air machines to new levels of performance, convenience, and flexibility."
Bundle Complements Industry's Most Comprehensive SSD Line
The new Mercury Aura Bundle for the 2010 and 2011 MacBook Air models enhances OWC's existing line of performance-leading, world record-breaking 3G (3Gb/s) and 6G (6Gb/s) Mercury SSDs. OWC offers SSDs for nearly every Mac and PC produced over the past decade in capacities from 30GB to 1TB with prices starting from $49.99.
