Add 480GB of SSD storage to your 2010 or 2011 MacBook Air with the 480GB Aura 6G mSATA SSD from OWC / Other World Computing. The drive is compatible with 11" and 13" MacBook Airs released in July 2011 (MacBookAir4,2 and 4,1) and October 2010 (MacBookAir3,2 and 3,1).

This SSD connects to your MacBook Air using an mSATA connection and features no moving parts, helping to protect it from accidental bumps and drops, as well as achieve faster data transfer speeds. In terms of speed, the drive sports a SandForce 2200 controller that delivers sustained reads of up to 507 MB/s, sustained writes of up to 454 MB/s, random 4K reads of up to 50,000 IOPS, and random 4K writes of up to 50,000 IOPS.

The Aura 6G comes equipped with Intelligent Block Management and Wear Leveling technology that automatically distributes data evenly across the entire SSD to increase its lifespan. To enhance data integrity, it utilizes StaticDataRefresh technology for managing free space and gradually refreshing data across the SSD. Furthermore, AES 128-bit support protects your data.

Aura SSD Features

DuraWrite extends the endurance of your Solid-State Drive (SSD)
Intelligent block management & wear leveling automatically distributes data evenly across the entire SSD
Intelligent read disturb management spreads the active read/write across the flash components eliminating data corruption caused by constant use
Intelligent recycling for advanced free space management gradually re-writes data across the SSD over time to ensure data never gets corrupted
RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) protects the data on your drive similar to having a RAID setup
ECC protection for long data retention and drive life

    480GB Aura 6G mSATA SSD for MacBook Air 2010-11 Edition is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant update for a brilliant Macbook Upgrade was very easy, with the right tools (Apple has their own screwdriver version, so be sure to buy one before approaching the upgrade) . Backup of the original SSD was performed to an external USB drive, then it tool 5 mins to replace the SSD with the OWC one as per the iFixit instructions (kudos!). Restoring the SSD from the USB drive took a while and I had to look up the instructions by googling around a while. Now the memory available is as you need it with all the data you want to collect on this chique MacBook. And it seems like the MacBook was speeded up from the baseline that was already very good. Just an impression, not measured.
