Other World Computing (OWC) expanded its ThunderBay lineup of storage devices with the introduction of the speedy ThunderBay mini 4 portable SSD storage with RAID 5 two years ago. Recently, OWC introduced its highest capacity and fastest desktop SSD configurations yet by adding 10, 20, 30 and 40TB SSDs to the ThunerBay mini 4.
Other World Computing (OWC), a U.S.-based company and online store for Mac upgrades and accessories located at MacSales.com, today announced the ultimate docking station for your brand spanking new MacBook Pro.
With the new Pro the Cupertino firm is (rightly) betting on USB-C, effectively putting us in a dongle hell for now. Enter the new $279 Thunderbolt 3 Dock, a successor to OWC’s Thunderbolt 2 Dock and USB-C Dock.
Billed as the best expansion solution they’ve ever made, it offers the speed of Thunderbolt 3 technology coupled with a whopping thirteen expansion ports to help get the most out of the new late-2016 MacBook Pro.
In March, Other World Computing (OWC) launched the world’s first SSD upgrade for 2013 and later MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina display computers. The storage upgrades came in 480GB and 1TB flavors, and we recently showed you the install process of the 1TB OWC Aura SSD upgrade.
There was unfortunately a caveat that disallowed you to use Apple’s Boot Camp feature with the drives, which meant you were limited to installing one operating system on it at a time, or using a virtual machine instead of partitioning the drive and dual-booting your Mac.
As of today, OWC has fixed this problem with a new universal driver that enables Boot Camp on all of OWC’s SSD upgrades to date.
Other World Computing unveiled their Aura Pro PCI-e drop-in SSD upgrade kits last month for 2013 and later MacBook Pro with Retina display and MacBook Air model notebooks.
OWC’s Aura Pro SSD storage upgrades start at $399.00 (introductory price) for a 480GB module and and go up in price from there.
Sure to be a popular seller for those that want to upgrade the on-board storage in their expensive Macs without buying an all-new Mac, we’ve decided to try it out and share with you exactly what we think about it.
At CES, Other World Computing launched several new products aimed at Apple users, including a new desktop-class solid state drive (SSD) packaged inside a tiny USB 3.0 thumb drive form factor and a work-in-progress version of the forthcoming Transwarp software which marries traditional hard drive to SSD cache akin to Apple’s own FusionDrive solution.
