OWC Announces new 4.0GB upgrade kit for new macbook pro core 2 duo 2.2GHz and 2.4GHz models

Upgrade from 2.0GB to 4.0GB for less than 1/3rd of the Apple Factory Option

Jun 15, 2007 | Woodstock, IL


Other World Computing (OWC), a leading Mac and PC technology company, announced today that it is offering 4.0GB Memory Kits for Apple’s new recently announced MacBook Pro 2.2GHz and 2.4GHz models, which began shipping on June 5th. OWC Memory options of up to 3.0GB are also available for MacBook 13.3” and previous MacBook Pro 15” and 17” models.

OWC memory upgrades meet or exceed Apple’s electrical and mechanical design requirements. OWC is an Apple Developer Connection Premiere Member and maintains an active state-of-the-art test lab to ensure the highest product quality and reliability. OWC Memory Customers are ensured a lifetime of high-performance, reliable operation backed with OWC’s Money Back Guarantee and Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty.

OWC, an expert in the Mac memory market, has nearly two decades of experience providing memory module upgrades for Mac computers. OWC has conducted independent memory benchmarks on MacBook and Macbook Pro laptops, which show how important memory is for customers employing high-memory intensive applications, such as audio/video, photo, 3D modeling, and other applications.
From these tests, OWC recommends customers upgrade with either one module or matched pairs – whichever best fits their budget and provides the most total memory. Whether interleaved or not, all memory increases provide overall performance gain.

“OWC is all about maximizing performance and impressively, we’ve found there can be better performance attained even between 2.0GB and 3.0GB memory configurations than the benefit of getting a new system with a faster processor,” said Larry O’Connor, President, OWC. “More memory makes a tremendous difference, as our real-world testing illustrates, and the up to 4.0GB supported in the new MacBook Pros is yet further benefit beyond just the processor speed bump.”

The OWC 4.0GB Memory Upgrade Kit is available immediately, priced at $219.99 (configured as two 2GB memory modules). Additional savings are also available for customers who take advantage of OWC’s trade-in program, which provides $50 cash back for the trade-in of two 1GB modules.
