If you’re running out of room for apps and media on your Mac, it’s time to think about swapping out the undersized Solid-State Drive it shipped with for a roomier option. Amazon offers the Transcend 480GB JetDrive SSD MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Upgrade Kit for $229.99 with free shipping. Each of the models in today’s sale typically sell for $280 and have never been priced lower on Amazon.

Not only do these kits include a replacement internal SSD, they also have an aluminum USB 3.0 external enclosure so you can repurpose the original SSD. We upgraded one of our MacBook Air laptops using a Transcend JetDrive and found the process to be surprisingly painless. Transcend makes larger capacities and supports other Mac models, but those options aren’t currently on sale.

Not comfortable opening up your Mac? Transcend’s JetDrive Lite adds up to 256GB to your Mac via the SD card slot.

The Best SSD Upgrade Kit.

Introducing our new JetDrive SSD upgrade kits for the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina display. Complete with tools, instructions, and a slick aluminum USB 3.0 enclosure to reuse your original SSD, Transcend’s JetDrive SSD upgrade kits allow you to both increase your storage space and boost the performance of your Mac®. Transcend’s JetDrive SSDs are also backed by an industry-leading 5-year warranty.
