Mac Pro supports up to four 3Gb/s Serial ATA hard drives or solid-state drives for up to 8TB of storage. The cable-free, direct-attach drive solution lets you install and remove drives in a snap. To install a drive, you connect a simple drive carrier to the hard drive, then just slide it into place -- no cables or connectors to hassle with. Removing the drive is just as easy. Every Mac Pro ships with four hard drive carriers. This solution is perfect if you ever share drives among different workstations at home or the studio.
- Requires Mac Pro (Early 2009) or Mac Pro (Mid 2010) and Mac OS X v10.6.7 or later.
- Note: 1TB = 1 trillion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
