OWC Aura SSD upgrades for the 2013 Mac Pro are available for pre-order starting at $899 for the 1TB model and $1449 for the 2TB model. The kits come with all of the tools necessary for a simplified DIY upgrade, including a comprehensive step-by-step installation video and 24/7 award-winning, U.S.-based technical support.

Since the first Mac Pro in 2006, OWC has been a leading provider of award-winning computer upgrades and enhancement products for every Mac Pro model Apple has introduced. Building on this experience, OWC's new Aura SSDs for Mac Pro 2013 feature:
