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?
The March 2015 update of Apple's 13" MacBook Air features fifth generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, resulting in slightly increased performance and battery life.
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.
