Apple cuts prices on storage upgrades for older Macs
While we were busy gasping at the prices of the newest MacBook Pros, Apple was slashing prices on other Mac upgrades—specifically the 512GB and 1TB SSD build-to-order options for the MacBook Air, last year’s MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro, and Mac mini. Adding more storage to a base model Mac is now $100-$200 cheaper, so a 512GB upgrade is in the $200-$300 range and 1TB is $600-$700.
MacRumors first noticed the price drops, which make buying an older Mac a slightly more compelling option. Want a MacBook Pro with more storage and don’t care about the Touch Bar? Upgrade the 2015 15-inch Pro to 512GB for $200, down from $300, or to 1TB for $600, down from $800. The 13-inch Pro can be upgraded for $200 (for 256GB), $400 (for 512GB), or $800 (for 1TB).
