As soon as Apple rolled out the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display last summer, all the Mac addicts we know began clamoring for more Retina models, and this past fall Apple obliged, introducing a 13-inch version. From the outside, it looks just like its big brother: The same jaw-dropping LED-backlit display, with four times the pixels (2560x1600 in this case). The same advanced ports, including two Thunderbolt ports, two USB 3, HDMI, SDXC, and MagSafe 2. The same thinner, lighter design — this model just 0.75 inches thin (that’s a mere seven one-hundredths of an inch thicker than a MacBook Air) — and weighing only 3.57 pounds. But inside, it's pretty different.
Only a week after Apple announced the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, Other World Computing has already revealed its third-party SSD upgrade. The Mercury Aura Pro can increase your storage to 480GB, while saving you some dough in comparison to the factory upgrades offered by Apple.
