Other World Computing (OWC®), a leading Mac and PC technology company, has added two new free, step-by-step installation videos to its comprehensive library of step-by-step guides to assist owners of new Apple MacBook 13" and MacBook Pro 15" models with hard drive and memory upgrades for greater performance over factory configurations.

The free online installation videos for both hard drive and OWC memory upgrades for the latest MacBook and MacBook Pro models are rated at an “Easy” level, and can be performed at home with an estimated 15-minute installation time.

Save Money, Get Better Performance Over Factory Options

OWC offers new and existing model MacBook and MacBook Pro owners a full selection of cost-effective 2.5" SATA internal hard drive and OWC Memory Upgrade Kits to increase performance over the factory stock configuration. Prices start at $57.99 for a 200GB 5400RPM drive, with the most popular upgrades including a 320GB 7200RPM drive priced at $114.99 and a 500GB 5400RPM drive priced at $179.99. OWC hard drive upgrades often cost far less than similar options installed at the factory, as well as offering a longer warranty.

In addition, MacBook and MacBook Pro owners that purchase a new drive from OWC also enjoy the benefit of keeping their existing drive, which can be used as a temporary backup drive, converted into an external storage solution, or sent to OWC for a cash back trade-in.

OWC Memory Upgrade Kits are available up to 4.0GB for the latest as well as existing MacBook and MacBook Pro models and are backed with a Money Back Guarantee and OWC’s Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty. Additional money savings are also available through OWC’s trade-in program, which provides $15.00 Cash Back per 1.0GB Apple Factory Standard memory module.
