Are there any cheap ssd upgrades (500gb)
I am looking for a cheap ssd for my macbook i dont wanna spend more then 200$ so can somebody recomend me something?
Sadly Apple uses a custom SSD unit which is only available through Apple or only recently from OWC which makes a unit that also works.
OWC480GB Aura SSD $380 US
Review this site for other OWC sizes: OWC - MacBook Air 11" & 13" Mid 2013, 2014, and 2015 SSD Options
And here is the IFIXIT guide to replace the SSD: MacBook Air 13" Early 2015 SSD Replacement
@valentijn, this is what I do all the time:
1) Get item B01LXLU3A9 from Amazon.com for $14 and tax.
2) Get any mSATA like the mSATA version of the Samsung 850 EVO.
Once you install an OS like Yosemite 10.10.4 or later, open a terminal and type
'sudo trimforce enable'.
You now have a working non Apple controlled SSD with TRIM enabled.
Depending on the size, it is under $120 + tax.
