It’s MacWorld, which means those providers of Apple gear are busting out wares for aftermarket insertion into your objects of desire. Other World Computing’s latest offering is a slender solid-state drive ready to be crow-barred into last year’s MacBook Airs. The bombastically named OWC Mercury Aura Pro Express 6G SSD is a SATA Rev. 3.0 drive with a promised 6GB/s data speed at sizes of up to 480GB. Since the stock drives are limited to the 3GB/s SATA Rev. 2.0 (but the controllers run 3.0), you should find a significant performance bump when swapping in the new unit. The toggle-synchronous NAND drives come in a variety of sizes from 120GB ($ 260) all the way to 480GB ($ 1,150), but you’ll get a three-year warranty for all that cash. We may never give you our money, nor our funny pages, but you can have the press release that’s after the break.
