Update: The price has jumped up slightly to $321.75, still a good deal
Amazon offers the Transcend JetDrive 520 480GB SATA III Upgrade Kit for Macbook Air SSD for $317.45 with free shipping. That’s a fresh price drop of nearly $33 and the lowest we’ve seen since its release a few months back.
As noted in our review, the JetDrive is an easy way to upgrade the storage capacity of many MacBook Air and Retina MacBook Pro models. This particular model will only work with a mid-2012 MacBook Air. Other models are available in capacities up to 960GB for both Macs, however they are not currently on sale. Early Amazon reviewers rate it a perfect 5 out of 5 stars.
Don’t feel comfortable opening up your Mac? Use one of these three hacks to add semi-permananet storage through the SD card slot.
