Owc Data Doubler Adds Extra Hard Drive to Your iMac or Mac Mini

by Shane McGlaun

It took me a while to come to grips with using a netbook or ultra portable without an optical drive. At first, I worried that I would miss the drive all the time, and on occasion I do. For the most part the optical drive not being in my netbook doesn’t bother me at all.

Most of us just don’t use the optical drive much and if we do need it at home, that’s what network drive mapping is for or a USB drive. Other World Computing has a cool new offering for people using a Mac mini or iMac computer that want more storage space and don’t use their optical drive called Data Doubler.

The Data Doubler is a kit that includes a mounting tray and all the hardware needed to replace that unused optical drive with an extra SSD or HDD for more storage. The kit will fit into Mac mini computers from early and mid 2009. It will also fit into most iMac machines with screens 20-inches and up from the middle of 2009 up. Pro installation is recommended for the iMac users, but the mini user can do the install DIY style.

You can grab the Data Doubler over at OWC for $79.99 (USD).
