Other World Computing (OWC) has announced the OWC Mercury Aura Pro, the first high-performance Solid State Drive upgrade for the 2012 MacBook Pro with Retina display (rMBP).
Available in 480GB capacity, the 6G (6Gb/s) SandForce Driven Mercury Aura Pro offers rMBP owners 87.5% more capacity than the factory 256GB model that comes with the base unit rMPB. Additionally, customers buying the US$579.99 MSRP Aura Pro direct from OWC until Sept. 30 will later receive the OWC Envoy Pro USB 3.0 bus-powered portable enclosure (a $59.95 value) for re-tasking the rMBP's factory flash module as an external drive at no additional cost.
