The DEC attaches completely flush to the bottom of the 2016 MacBook Pro, providing additional flash storage and connectivity, increasing the performance of MacBook Pros. With the DEC, users will get an enhancement path for their 2016 MacBook Pro and MacBook Pro with Touch Bar to keep their system upgradeable for the long term in a clean and integrated fashion. On top of the core functional benefits, it also touts a sleek design. When installed, the DEC and MacBook Pro will be as thin as a 2012 MacBook Pro, allowing this advanced solution to retain the attractive light weight design that users favor.
Patented solution has range of features, which include:
Up to 4TB of additional SSD storage (for a maximum of 6TB, including factory capacity)
SD/Multi-Media card slot
USB 3 Type A ports for standard USB cabled devices
And other features to be announced at a later date
Larry O'Connor, founder and CEO, OWC, showcased the DEC prototype in Las Vegas, NV. It enables the MacBook Pro to be updated and expanded in order to operate at peak performance and ultimately be relevant for years longer than may otherwise be expected.
"We've been developing this concept for over three years and feel now is the perfect time for this ground-breaking product," said O'Connor. "Storage space is always at a premium on a laptop and without the potential to upgrade the factory drive, the OWC DEC gives users that option back in addition to cleanly supporting the gear we all rely on."
The firm will ship the DEC in Spring 2017.
