Other World Computing (OWC) today announced new 1TB and 2TB Aura SSD upgrades designed for the Mac Pro, offering Mac Pro owners a way to upgrade the storage in their machines without needing to purchase upgrades directly from Apple.
Apple's 1TB upgrade option costs $800 over the base 256GB SSD option, and while OWC's 1TB upgrade option is priced slightly higher at $899, it gives users an option to convert their existing SSD into an external USB 3.0 drive.
Apple offers a maximum of 1TB of storage, so OWC's 2TB solution, priced at $1,479, is a good solution for users who are looking for additional storage for their Mac Pros. The 2TB option also comes with a kit for converting an existing SSD into an external USB 3.0 drive.
The kits, which are available for pre-order, come equipped with the tools needed for a do-it-yourself storage upgrade, a step-by-step installation video, and tech support provided by OWC. The kits are expected to ship in two to three weeks.

2015 Mac Pro :)
Where are the RAM Upgrades for the iPhones?
native trim support ?
I have been waiting so long for a macbook pro 2TB SSD. ADATA promised one in the 4th quarter of this year at two tech events (one in Janurary and one in June). Still no 2TB SSD for laptops by any company! :(
Educate yourself how GC works, educate yourself about its shortcomings regarding filesystems and deleted files, and finally educate yourself how TRIM is mitigating these shortcominigs and why GC without TRIM is not a viable alternative.
Then reevalute your posting.
Have a nice day. :)
PS: If TRIM really were a "low cost half assed solution", why is Apple enabling it for all its SSDs? ;)
