Even Better SSD Performance with Mercury Aura

Mecury Aura Pro Express SSD for MacBook Air

Were I to press the MacBook Air into service for serious use, I’d want both a larger and faster and more durable SSD than the once Apple supplies.

The OWC Mercury Aura Pro Express Solid State Drive is the solution, and it would be my first choice for the ’Air. It won Best of Show at the January 2011 MacWorld Expo.

The Mercury Aura Pro comes in 180GB, 240GB and 360GB capacities ( those are real usable capacities, not the cheater numbers that Apple uses).

The 240GB model is the sweet spot in terms of price and capacity, and is only 10GB less than Apple’s largest offering.

For those who need more storage, the 360GB model offers 110GB more capacity than Apple’s largest offering (the Apple 250GB SSD).

Older MacBook Air

For an even greater boost, there is the Mercury Aura Pro MBA for the 2008/2009 MacBook Air, in 60/120/240/480GB capacities. The drive performance is night and day in these older MacBook Airs, which had poky internal drives.

Benefits

Self install—
tools included.

The benefits include:

  • Faster performance than the factory drive;
  • Best in class ECC error correction for long term reliability and life using 7% over-provisioning;
  • Up to 360GB capacity;
  • Tools provided for installation.
  • 30-day money-back guarantee!

Not so obvious virtual memory benefits

The 2010 MacBook Air is limited to a paltry 4GB of memory (and only 3.75GB is available to the system and applications). When that 4GB memory runs low, the system has to start reading and writing from the drive (“virtual memory”).

The higher performance of the Mercury Aura Pro thus provides better system performance just when it’s degrading the most. It’s the only way to raise the performance when memory gets low, since 4GB memory is the hard limit for the ’Air.
