Make Your MacBook Air or Retina Best in Class with OWC

PR_OWC_retina_240gbBTSLugging your laptop to class is much easier than it was even just five years ago. There is no shortage of slim, yet powerful, machines available including the ultra-light MacBook Air models. And if you need more even performance in a sleek, slim design, the MacBook Pro with Retina display packs more than just a pretty face.

Of course, with all of this packing, transporting, cramming and tossing into your bag, you’ll want to give your Mac some added protection without sacrificing the slim design that made it so appealing in the first place. Fortunately, OWC’s Back to School headquarters puts everything you need in one place to keep your Air or Retina looking and running great!

The best-looking MacBook on campus
If you’re tired of your MacBook standing out for all the wrong reasons (those scratches really are that noticeable…), protect it with a NewerTech NuGuard Snap-On Laptop Cover. And with the NewerTech NuGuard Keyboard Cover, even the longest senior thesis won’t wear your keys out, and they’ll be protected from the potato chips and energy drinks that powered you along the way.

But if you truly want to elevate your Air or Retina to the next level of beauty while also gaining extra storage, we have the solution that looks as great as your MacBook itself. Upgrade your 2010-2012 Air or early-2013 or older rMBP model with an OWC Aura/Aura Pro SSD and reuse the factory SSD via the OWC Envoy/Envoy Pro as an external storage solution. The Envoy is so pretty, in fact, it’s been hailed as “absolutely beautiful and on par with the best that has come out of Jony Ive’s (SVP of Industrial Design at Apple) labs.” Or you can opt for the Envoy EX, which goes great with any USB 3.0-capable Mac.

Accessories and more!
With their slim design, there’s no room for optical drives in the Air and Retina MacBooks. But we’ve got the solutions to help you bring optical capabilities back to your workflow. Need an extra power supply for a quick charge between classes? We have that covered, too. And if your MacBook Air or Retina MacBook uses a MagSafe 2 power adapter, you can secure your connection with the convenient NewerTech Snuglet.
