Don’t pay an outrageous $1,400 to upgrade your SSD
The new Macbook is here, and there is a lot to like in this new iteration of Apple’s iconic laptop. It’s sleeker, it’s faster, it’s lighter, it’s brighter, it’s got some dazzlingly impressive bells and whistles…
and it’s more expensive…
Being the storage-minded folks that we are, the thing that immediately stood out to us was the cost of upgrading the SSD on this beauty. $1,400 extra for a 2TB drive? Say what?!
Yup. That is a ton of dough to spend on some extra storage. You can actually buy a brand new MacBook Air and a brand new iPad Air 2 for the same amount of money. Or, better yet, how about 23 years of unlimited storage from Amazon Drive?
Upgrade to Infinite Terabytes
For many, many users, supplementing local disk space with cloud storage is a perfect solution. The tools are available to create a seamless experience, providing native OS integration and on-demand access to unlimited storage.
When you are able to use cloud storage, the right way, a 256GB SSD is practically overkill for the average Macbook user. Buying more local storage is a move in the wrong direction.
The odrive Way
Providing solutions for using cloud storage in the best way possible is what we do. We want you to be able to leverage the cloud well enough that the idea of paying $1400 for 2TB of storage becomes a ludicrous proposition.
We do this by approaching cloud storage management and sync in a unique way. The odrive progressive sync engine in our free clients allow users to visualize the entirety of their cloud storage, without having to download a single file.
We sync differently, downloading only what you want, when you want, but making absolutely everything available, at your fingertips. Browse through terabytes of data without using a single kilobyte of local disk space.
Upgrade the Storage, Downsize the Bloat
Are you coming from a system that already has more than 256GB of local storage? No problem! With odrive you can move all of your important data to the cloud in 3 easy steps:
- Download odrive
- Link your storage
- Move your data into the odrive folder
That’s it! odrive will now plug away, uploading all of your content to the cloud.
Not only will this be the easiest system migration you’ve ever done, but you will now have all of that data safe, secure, and redundant in the cloud. Once your new Macbook Pro arrives you will be able to access any of your stored data within minutes of powering it on. It will be ready and waiting for you in its new, lean, de-bloated form.
Keep Your Laptop Light and Your Wallet Heavy
With odrive and Amazon Drive, or any other cloud storage service you may wish to use, you can forego that expensive SSD upgrade without sacrificing storage capacity. So, grab that new Macbook Pro with the 256GB SSD, download odrive, and enjoy!
