Lets us do all the work!

Buy this one item and you can drop your Macbook Pro or Macbook Air to our Pymble office and we will install a 480GB OWC Aura Pro X2 NVME SSD. Service can also include new macOS (you choose which one) or a clone your current drive or just initialise the SSD ready for a Time Machine restore. Please note the Mac must be running minimum macOS High Sierra.

Price includes: SSD and labour. Add this one item to the cart and checkout to get a new 480GB SSD. No ordinary SSD, this is the latest and greatest NVME drive, reads at 3192MB/s which is twice as fast as your original Apple SSD. This upgrade will make your Mac as fast as a new one!

Cloning your current drive, means we copy everything on your Mac onto the new SSD, so there is no reinstalling of software, it boots up just like when you gave it to us! If you want to start fresh, we can install your choice of MacOS on the new SSD and hand you the old drive when you collect your computer.

This service includes everything but not an Envoy case for your old drive. If you want to use your old drive in an external case you will need to buy an OWC Envoy Pro enclosure separately.

If you are not sure, want to talk through all your options, please call our team on 02 9391 5201.

How long does the installation service take?
Typically we ask customers to drop off the Mac in the morning and it can be collected in the afternoon. A standard installation can take 30 minutes however to clone a drive can take up to 3 to 4 hours if there are problems. If there is a small amount of data, it can be done in less than an hour.

Can I wait for the service to be done?
If we think the service will be less than an hour, you are welcome to wait. We have an excellent coffee shop in the business park we are located in, and a few choices for lunch that will not disappoint.

Will adding a bigger a SSD speed up my Mac?
The OWC Aura Pro X2 is twice as faster as your current SSD. Yes you will see a big improvement in speed.
Also, if you are running low on storage it can affect the speed of the system by making virtual RAM unavailable. When you run low on RAM, the system uses the SSD as RAM. If you have low storage then this option is not available, so the system slows down. Putting in a larger SSD will make the Mac work more efficiently and faster.

When can I drop off my Mac?
You can drop off your Mac anytime. If you need the service done at a specific time please call the office. 

Can your tech do other software or hardware work? 
Please call our team on 02 93915201 to discuss any additional work.

What is the warranty? 
Warranty on labour and SSD is both 5 years!!! So if you have a problem with the SSD during the warranty period we will exchange and install a new SSD at no extra cost. That is how confident we are with the quality of our workmanship and the OWC SSD. 

More Space. Twice as fast.

If you need to speed up your Mac, this is your upgrade. An SSD upgrade is not complicated, we show you how and back it up with technical service that is a phone call away.
