OWC Makes Memory Upgrades for Apple Mac Pro '2013' Even More Compelling with Easier-than-Ever Installation and Savings of up to 40% vs. Factory Memory Options

New OWC online installation video helps eliminate any question for this Apple approved upgrade option, and OWC is now including bonus "Spudger" Tool with 1866MHZ DDR3 Kits to make this easy upgrade for Mac Pro 2013 models to 32GB or 64GB simpler yet.

January 28, 2014, Woodstock, IL – Other World Computing (OWC®), a leading zero emissions Mac upgrade and storage technology company, announced today that it has posted a full install video online and is now including a new nylon pry tool (aka "Spudger") with all of its fully certified Memory upgrade kits for Apple's new Mac Pro 2013 models. With the additions, OWCs ECC 1866MHz Quad-Channel Matched Kits are not only more cost-effective than the factory options, they're easier to install. Available in 32GB and 64GB, the kits offer savings of up to 34% versus the factory option cost additions. Generous trade-in rebates for factory installed memory provide for net savings of up to 40% versus factory options, potentially saving customers hundreds of dollars.

"While Apple has made it easy with a push-up release system and printed factory instructions for this end-user supported upgrade installation, our installation video and the Spudger tool we're including with our Mac Pro 2013 upgrade kits make it even easier yet, with no question of the 'push' required to access the memory slots," said Larry O'Connor, OWC Founder and CEO.

OWC 1866MHZ DDR3 Kits are available now for upgrading all of Apple's new '2013' Mac Pro 3.5GHz 6-Core, 3.0GHz 8-Core, and 2.7GHz 12-Core models to up to 64GB.The Spudger tool now included with all OWC Mac Pro Upgrade kits is the same type of tool used by Apple technicians to aid in the disassembly of iPods, iPads and iPhones without damaging or scratching any other component.

Since the first Mac Pro in 2006, OWC has been the first to market and leading after-market provider of memory for the every Mac Pro Apple has introduced. All OWC Memory upgrade kits for Apple Mac Pro 2013 models consist of four matched, true 1866MHz modules (full-rated components, no overclocking) that have been tested and certified to meet, if not exceed, Apple Design Specifications. Fully RoHS- and JEDEC-compliant, they are designed to provide the full benefit this latest Mac Pro can garner from its high-performance memory bus. Like all OWC Memory Upgrades, the Mac Pro Upgrade Kits are backed with a Money Back Guarantee and OWC's Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty.
