Close

Apple has dropped the price on select SSD upgrades for the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini, as well as a RAM upgrade option for the 2013 Mac Pro.

This comes hot on the heels of the new iMac and iMac Pro models with updated internals.

MacBook Air

As first spotted by MacRumors, the entry-level model of the 2018 MacBook Air can now be upgraded to 1.5 TB SSD for $1,100. That's $100 cheaper than the original $1,200 price. The 256 GB and 512 GB SSD options are still the same, costing $200 and $400, respectively.

Upgrading the higher-end version of the laptop that comes with a base storage of 256 GB SSD to 1.5 TB SSD will cost $900, down from $1,000, which comes to $100 in savings as well. An upgrade to 512 GB SSD is still $200.

MacBook Pro

Customers can now upgrade the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro to 2 TB SSD for $1,200, down from $1,400. The 512 GB and 1 TB SSD upgrades remain unchanged, which are $200 and $600, respectively. Meanwhile, the 2 TB SSD upgrade for the higher-end variant will cost $1,000, which is also a $200 price drop. Its 1 TB SSD upgrade is still priced at $400.

Now the 15-inch base model can now be upgraded to 2 TB SSD for $1,200 ($200 off) or 4 TB SSD for $3,000 ($400 off). The 512 GB and 1 TB SSD upgrades still cost the same at $200 and $600, respectively. The higher-end version is upgradable to 2 TB SSD for $1,000 ($200 off) or 4 TB SSD for $2,800 ($400 off). There's also the 1 TB SSD option for $400, which is still the same price as before.

Mac Mini

Apple lowered the price of the entry-level Mac mini's 2 TB SSD upgrade to $1,400, which is $200 cheaper now. The $200 256 GB, $400 512 GB, and $800 1 TB SSD upgrades retain their pricing.

In the case of the higher-end variant, an upgrade to 2 TB SSD will cost $1,200, a $200 price drop as well. Upgrades to 512 GB and 1 TB SSD cost the same as always at $200 and $600, respectively.

Mac Pro

The 2013 Mac Pro, which hasn't seen an update since time immemorial, can be upgraded to 64 GB of RAM for $800, down from $1,200 — that's a whopping $400 price drop. The Cupertino brand is expected to unveil a new modular Mac Pro sometime this year, though.
