Add up to an additional 750GB of internal storage. Add a Solid State Drive (SSD) for near instantaneous boot
and app load. Even create a RAID array! Includes bracket screws, and detailed
installation guide for complete all in one solution.

Configuration flexibility is yours when you replace your Mac mini or iMac’s* internal SuperDrive with the OWC
Data Doubler. This custom engineered blue anodized aluminum bracket with adapter cable comes ready
to mount any 9.5mm tall 2.5″ SATA hard disk drive and even Solid State Drives.

OWC Data Doubler makes it easy to custom design how you want your internal storage to
perform. Installed drives are recognized like any other high speed SATA storage device
and can be setup and partitioned using the Apple Disk Utility Program.
