OWC MacBook Air 2013 Unboxing + Inside Pics

We got our hands on the newly announced MacBook Air 2013 11 and 13-inch models from Apple, and, of course, we had an unboxing party. Naturally, since we’re tech people, we also took a peek inside. Here’s what we saw in the 11″ and 13″ models below…

  • Hey guys, it’s been a while since we’ve heard from you about this. Would love to know if you are working on this and, if so, whether you have an ETA for it? :)

    Thanks in advance :)

    Pointer please? Tell us the base model Air that OWC can improve on, and how that works out?

  • A bit of a hijacking subject, but pardon me.

    iFixit has made a teardown of the 6th gen. Airport Extreme Base Station and it is seemingly possible to add an internal HDD and convert it into a Time Capsule.

    Except that it does not come with the connector cables…

    Are you keen into it too ,checking to see if you will provide a cable kit for the 6th gen. Airport Extreme Base Station?
    If you are considering it, a blog post would come nice.

    • Perusing iFixit’s teardown, while there is the physical space to slide a 3.5″ hard drive into the AirPort Extreme Base Station – there doesn’t seem to be an available data connection on the board to plug a cable into. So it seems to be missing a bit more than just the cables. However, we do have a few on order so we’ll be looking into it when they arrive.

  • is the memory upgradable on the new 11″ model? if so- about when will you have available?

    • Just like prior versions, the memory is soldered to the motherboard and not user upgradeable.

  • The SSD connector on the photo looks apparently different from 2012 model’s. Probably not committable physically.

  • So DYING to know if you will be releasing your own SSD’s for these.
    Jason, I believe they’ll have to design new SSD’s. The new ones are physically smaller(iFixit teardown) and the interface is PCIe whereas the previous ones have all be SATA.

    OWC, keep us posted on this ASAP. Gotta know if I can save a few $$$(many actually) on my new air and have the option of updating storage later.

    • The machines are currently in testing – when we complete the compatibility tests we will announce our findings here on the OWC Blog.
