OWC have just started shipping their 2.0TB Aura Pro X SSD Flash memory for the Mac Pro, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Retina.
The 2.0TB Aura Pro X SSD Flash upgrade provides up to 16X more capacity than an existing Apple factory drives as well as twice the maximum capacity option ever available. Not only does the Aura Pro X provide increased storage capacity, it delivers it with speed by providing peak performance speeds over 1600MB/s and sustained data rates of over 1350MB/s.
Upgrading the internal flash memory on an older Mac can certainly prolong your computers life. The Flash memory OWC sells is also significantly cheaper than what Apple sells theirs for, and for certain models, its also double the capacity.

On systems with macOS 10.13, the Aura Pro X requires no hacks, drivers or special support software for any aspect of its use on macOS, nor does it need to take advantage of alternative Operating Systems supported by Apple BootCamp.
