Other World Computing Begins Shipping Hard Drive Kits for New MacBooks

Coming off the heels of the recently released new line of MacBooks, Other World Computing has begun shipping its own MacBook drive upgrades.

In true capitalistic fashion, the third-party memory provider’s drive upgrades take advantage of the new MacBooks and MacBook Pro’s replaceable drives, as the base model kits tend to be far less expensive than upgrading directly through Apple. OWC also makes a point to note that they allow owners to retain their original factory installed drives.

The majority of the drive options center around 320GB disks, beginning with Hitachi’s Travelstar 5K320 available for $75. Spinning at 5,400 RPM and carrying 8MB of cache, the 5K320 is a good starter kit for the price. Users in need of more speed and storage can choose from either a Travelstar 7K320 or a Seagate Momentus 7200.3 coming in at $110 and $120 respectively, both carrying twice the cache and spin at 7,200RPM. OWC is additionally offering a 500GB Samsung Sandpoint M6 which comes in at 5,400 RPM and carries 8MB of cache for $180.
