    I would like to upgrade my Black Mac Pro from the 256GB SSD to a 1TB SSD. But I'd like to order the actual part that Apple uses so the SSD will be fully compatible with boot camp.

    I checked OWC but I read their SSD upgrade is not compatible with boot camp.

    Is there a place I can order the Apple SSD directly like a replacement part?

    I bought mine from a vendor off ebay , sputnik_systems. http://www.ebay.com/usr/sputnik_systems
    They answered all of my questions and were great to work with. They don't currently have any in stock but keep your eyes peeled, they sell them regularly.

    Keep in mind that the SSUBX cards are 40-50% faster then the ones that typically shipped in 6,1. As a result they typically sell for more, but they are a genuine upgrade. I've been curious if you buy a 6,1 today if they still include the slower SSUAX version or if they got silently updated.

    You may wish to read handheldgames long thread about using these in a PCIE card in cMP. You don't need the PCIE card but everything related to the Apple drives is relevant. Sadly, a petulant child came and took a poo in the thread a couple times and got it closed but the thread was so valuable it got reopened.

    Oddly, the SSUBX cards are slightly faster in a cMP then nMP. I was going to carry them but deal fell through.

    Do you have a link? I googled 1TB SSUBX and I didn't find anything.

    Just ordered this last night. Pretty excited to get it! It's very reasonable for new Apple SSD!

    I paid $649.00. Apparently he only had one or so because I ordered it last night and when I checked this AM it says unavailable. I paid for overnight shipping but still won't get it until Monday.

    I was't sure if the cheaper one was the same SSD and as fast. Thanks for helping me out.
    Thank you. I appreciate the link.

    It seems that the only source for Apple SSDs is used from eBay. Surely an enterprising Authorized Service Provider could offer upgrades? They wouldn't be cheap but would be brand new with warranty.

    It went very well. I had a very good purchasing experience with the seller. I have no complaints or any issues with the SSD.

    My order was brand new. It was not used or a pull from a machine. Check the eBay link I posted.

    That's the first that I have seen & the guy's USP is that it's brand new. Maybe there is an enterprising Authorized Service Provider supplying these.
