An aging Mac can be reawakened with an SSD upgrade, becoming more useful with additional storage. The OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD debuted Tuesday, and is available in sizes up to a whopping 4 terabytes.
Creative professionals working with 4K or 8K video, or anyone who just wants an enormous amount of portable storage, can turn to the OWC ThunderBlade. Starting Thursday, this SSD now offers up to a whopping 16TB in capacity, and can transfer data at 2800MB/s.
OWC also updated its Envoy Pro EX line with 4TB version. And the Accelsior 4M2 internal SSD now also offers up to 16TB of capacity.
The OWC USB-C Travel Dock has five ports to extend the capabilities of your MacBook or iPad Pro, including HDMI and dual USB-A. Wrapped around these is a casing of aluminum and plastic thick enough to stand up to the kind of punishment many of us subject our gear to. Yet it still looks professional.
We used this multiport hub on several business trips. Here’s how it came through.
New Macs are reliably cutting-edge when they first hit shelves. But as time goes by, Cupertino’s products, like any other, move toward obsolescence. Luckily, boosting your Mac’s performance — and extending its useful life — can be a cinch.
Recently, word went around that the only way to get 256GB of RAM in an iMac Pro was at the factory. OWC paid no attention to that, and is now offering to upgrade this powerful desktop to the maximum amount. Even better, its 256GB of RAM modules go for 52 percent less than the cost to have the same upgrade done by Apple.
Upgrading this desktop to 128GB of RAM with OWC DDR4 Kits is also significantly cheaper.
If you really need 256GB of RAM inside your iMac Pro, you’d better make sure you buy it that way from Apple. It seems it is impossible for owners to upgrade to this configuration after purchasing their machines — even if they have the latest model.
