Jetdrive is also 4X the capacity of existing Macbook hard disks. It comes in a few variants, users can get the one suitable for their respective Macbook.

The JetDrive SSD upgrade kits for the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina display comes complete with tools, instructions, and a slick aluminum USB 3.0 enclosure to for you to reuse your original SSD hard disk.
