OWC Offers Aura N SSD Upgrades up to 1TB to Keep Older Macs in the Game

OWC helps Macs run at their peak for years to come

May 14, 2019 | Woodstock, IL


OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company and quite possibly the world’s most respected creator of hard drives, SSDs, PC & Mac docking solutions and performance upgrade kits, announced the expansion of its Aura line of SSDs. The OWC Aura N expands Macs with up to 1TB of internal storage space to give Mac owners the speed and stamina they need for years to come. The Aura N joins the Aura X2 and Aura P12 (for PC) in the second-generation lineup of OWC Aura PCIe SSDs.

When Mac owners have invested in gear, programs, and customizations to their rigs, it doesn’t make sense to be forced to make a giant investment in a new machine because space is tight. Adding up to a 1TB upgrade with the OWC Aura N makes Macs more spacious than ever, for a fraction of the cost of new, and keeps that Mac just the way the owner likes it.

The new Aura N drives are engineered with advanced efficiencies to rival the latest models, and now run cooler and consume less energy than any previous edition. Users can continue to add the media, games and apps of their choice without worrying about space. Aura N gives Mac owners the storage and stamina their rigs need to run at their peak for years.
