Today OWC announced that it launched a 480 GB Mercury Aura Pro SSD module for the new 13-inch MacBook Pro. OWC noted that $580 upgrade option will cost you about $220 less compared to Apple 512 GB build-to-order flash module, and will allow you to reuse your original factory flash module.
One of the interesting changes is a battery layout with space underneath the trackpad being free of battery cells. Instead of battery cells in that area, Apple has opted to mount the flash storage, thus allowing access to the trackpad if it needs to be replaced.
