Want your old Mac to work as good as new without buying a new one? Other World Computing (OWC) has just released the Aura Pro X2 SSD which can make your Mac up to twice as fast with lots more storage space but at the fraction of the cost of buying a new Mac.

Even if your Mac is from 2013, the Aura Pro X2 SSD cards can bring your MacBook, Mac Pro or Mac Mini up to a similar level of performance as any of the latest Macs.

The Aura Pro X2 Solid State Drive is easy to install, and can add up to a massive 2TB of storage space to your Mac and offers read speeds of 3200 MB/s. That means transfer speeds of 3.1GB per second and write speeds of up to 2.3GB per second.

This gives you up to 16 times more storage space and up to double the processing speed.

This costs as little as $119.99 depending on your model of MacBook Pro, MacBook or Mac Mini and how much capacity and speed you want to install.

Apple charges hundreds of dollars for SSD upgrades so it saves a fortune on Apple’s sky-high prices too.
