High-Performance Internal Flash Storage Upgrade
Designed for Mac
Once again, OWC provides Mac users an upgrade path that delivers phenomenal performance, functionality, and reliability! Whether it's for the base 11" model only offering a 64GB SSD or the base 13" model offering just a 128GB SSD, installing an Aura Pro 6G SSD is the best enhancement for the 2012 MacBook Air. Just like other OWC upgrades, we include a free 'how-to' video to make this an easy and money-saving DIY upgrade.

Easy to instal into a MacBookAir. Works perfectly and with supplied enclosure allows me to continue using the old one as an external drive. Great product.
I have zero skill when it comes to fixing computers but this was easy to install with the help of the video.
