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).
