OWC 500GB Aura Pro for MacBook Pro Retina L12/E13 (with Tools & Enclosure)
Condition: Brand New
This OWC SSD is designed for the high-resolution display MacBook Pro Retina models. It is specific to those machines and is not designed for use with any other models. The drive has significantly improved performance over the SSDs which were supplied with the machines - see the charts here.
It also comes with the Envoy enclosure, which takes the old SSD that has been removed and turns it into a bus-powered external USB 3.0 drive (note requires USB 3.0, use under USB 2.0 is not supported). This not only makes it easy to clone the contents of the old drive to the new one (see our cloning guide) but means you end up with a useful external SSD drive that you can use over the long term.
Note, this kit comes with the pentalobe and Torx T5 screwdrivers needed to fit the drive.
This is the 500GB version of the OWC Aura Pro 6G for MacBook Pro with Retina display Early 2013 and earlier, with Envoy enclosure. Part code: OWCS3DAP12K500.
Note: All our drives are supplied unformated. To use this drive with your Mac you will first need to format it with the utility provided as part of your operating system. For more information, please see our Mac Drive Setup Guide.
Warning: The OWC Envoy enclosure has been specifically designed for use ONLY with the factory SSD currently installed in your Mac. Do NOT attempt to install or use the new OWC Aura SSD in the Envoy as you can damage the Aura drive, the Envoy enclosure or both and such damage is not covered under warranty.
