If you are happy with your Macbook Pro or Macbook Air and you just need some extra storage, then this upgrade you need to extend the life of your Mac.

Buy this one item and you can drop your Macbook Pro or Macbook Air to our Pymble office and we will install a 500GB OWC Aura Pro 6G 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. Price includes: SSD and labour. Add this one item to the cart and checkout to get a new 500GB SSD.

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 5200.

This installation service is at Pymble NSW Australia. If you want an onsite service (we come to you) or you are based outside of Sydney and want a local technician, please contact our office. 

 

Frequently asked questions

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 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 6G is faster than your current SSD. Yes you will see an improvement in speed.
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. 

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 93915200 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.

Does an OWC SSD void my Apple warranty? 
In Australia we have consumer laws that protect your rights. Most countries have similar laws. Under the Australian Consumer Law, when you buy products and services they come with automatic guarantees that they will work and do what you asked for. Adding a third party item like a OWC SSD does NOT void these warranties. 

Is this upgrade compatible with my computer?

We guarantee our memory is 100% compatible with your computer. How can we make such a bold claim? It is combination of quality product, vast industry knowledge and experience and the Upgradeable system we built to help customers find an upgrade for their specific computer.

You may have noticed our website is different from any other. It is not your typical eCommerce web shop. We do not get a list of products and categorise them, making you do all the work = which is the best upgrade? Our website is a configurator. We have taken all guess work out of buying an upgrade. Our technicians and engineers match the right memory upgrade to every computer we list. We do this in a unique way, which is the Upgradeable secret sauce. Our history and experience is in designing and manufacturing of computer components. In fact, in 1990's we were the first company to make a third party memory module in Australia at The Research Park, Bond University in Queensland. We have condensed all that experience into a system that rates a components quality. If it meets Upgradeable's stringent quality guidelines, then we list it as an available upgrade. That is why we can offer a lifetime warranty, and fast delivery. Who loses if it is not compatible? We do because we pay for the shipping charges and you get a full refund or advanced replacement!

Our goal is to delivery the right upgrade the first time. Look at our reviews, they say we deliver on what we promise.

The phone support I got before the purchase was excellent and facilitated my decision to go ahead and purchase the ssd drive, additional memory and new battery. It was pretty straightforward to instal and all is working extremely well.

I purchased an SSD upgrade to my MacBook Pro with little to no knowledge of hardware upgrades and installations. James walked me through step by step over the phone and then when the installation didn’t work James spent hours on finding a solution to my one off problem. He was extremely professional and understanding and I can’t thank him enough for quickly coming up with a solution and helping me get my computer back up and running. I would highly recommend not only the product but also their service Thanks again James!

Lifetime Warranty

All RAM upgrades supplied by Upgradeable have a lifetime warranty.
Our definition of lifetime warranty is: If the product ceases to work at anytime, you can return it for a replacement. Simple. No if's, no but's. Our RAM will out last your computer. We have had the same warranty since year 2000. It has never varied or been modified. Our competitors have played catch up and matched our warranty but they can never match our service. We don't provide a lifetime warranty as a gimmick, it is a statement on the values of our company, our goal of exceptional customer service and the quality of the products we supply.

Five year SSD warranty (3 year OWC Aura)
Unlike RAM, an SSD has limited write cycles, so it will eventually wear out. The Crucial MX500 is rated to last 360TB of write cycles. You would have to write 200GB every day for five years to wear it out! The new warranty for the MX500 SSD is five years. Our faulty SSD return policy is to make it as simple as possible for the customer. We will replace faulty drives as soon as they are returned. Please note older Crucial drives have a 3 year warranty and some OWC Aura SSD drives we sell have a 3 year warranty. The new Aura Pro X has a 5 year warranty.

14 Day Money Back Guarantee
When we started Upgradeable, we needed to assure customers our RAM would make a difference. What if the RAM upgrade did not speed up your computer? The answer is you can return the memory for a full refund. We chose 14 days because we thought that was a reasonable time frame. We have never refused a refund that has been a reasonable time past 14 days, such as 21 days or 30 days. If you are not happy with the RAM upgrade, we don't want to make your day worse by saying no to a refund. In fact, everything we list we stock, so if you dont want it, we restock it. This is a point in difference to most Kingston resellers. They don't stock the product, they are selling from someone else's warehouse. Which is why they don't like refunds.

Our money back guarantee is about your assurance that the RAM will make a difference. If is not about how many days, it is about customer service and trust. We have had the same guarantees for 18 years because they are sustainable. We plan to be here servicing our customers for more than the next 18 years!
