Heading to the Apple store, you will see that the prices for some SSD upgrades have been lowered. We are talking about the ones for MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini.
What SSD Upgrades Are on Sale?
The SSD upgrades that are now cheaper are the ones for the 1.5TB, 2TB, and 4TB SSDs. The price cust are between $100 – $400.
For example, the 1.5 TB SSD upgrade for the base MacBook Air is now $1,100 instead of $1,200. The same upgrade for MacBook Air 256GB SSD is now $900.
The 2 TB SSD for Mac mini is now down $200 for both the base and upgraded version. The 2TB SSD upgrades for the MacBook Pro have also dropped by $200 for the 13-inch and 150-inch models. The 15-inch MacBook Pro models get a bigger discount on the 4TB SSD upgrades, which is now down by $400.
Apple has also reduced the prices of RAM upgrades for the 2013 Mac Pro – the 64 GB RAM upgrade is now $800 (initially it was $1200).
The lower prices have been spotted on the Apple Store and are live in countries such as the US, UK, and Canada. Will they impact the prices in other countries? We’ll have to wait and see.
The Price Cuts Come With The Release of the New iMac 2019 line
Apple’s sudden price cuts for the SSD upgrade and RAM upgrades come with the launch of the new iMac models which have just been unveiled and will be available for purchase starting next week. The iMac 2019 models have been made available for pre-purchase in many countries and boast impressive specs and features.
They are also available at prices starting from $1,099 for the base 21.5-inch iMac, and $1,799 for the base 27-inch iMac. The prices go up to $1,499 for the high-end 21.5-inch iMac and $2,299 for the high-end 27-inch iMac – but they can be a lot more expensive if you choose to upgrade the RAMs and storage.
