    But Apple SSD prices are down in the new refreshes and across all the Mac lines.

    The 4TB upgrade option went from $2800 to $1400 in the top spec MBP.

    It’s still a lot of money, but it’s a lot less of a lot of money.

    Only for the Pro Display stand.

    Isn’t it just the general trend for price reduction of SSDs? Tech articles from nearly a year ago talked about why SSD prices would reduce dramatically in 2019.,37982.html

    Oh yes, that Pro Display stand is a must ; )

    The timing of my Blues winning that Cup couldn’t have been better. They knew how much I needed the extra work for that stand. Lets Go Blues!

    I see a Samsung 4TB SSD is $692 on Amazon

    That’s for a standard SSD drive running at SATAIII speeds.

    Mac laptops use faster storage similar to NVME M2 chips. 4TB of that kind of storage would probably cost more than $1000.

    Ah, I see. Sort of Lamborghini class memory. I’m sure it must come in very useful.

    It’s in most laptops now Bernie, just not in as large sizes or with as good read/write speeds

    The read/write speeds they have on the specs for this flash storage are about 4 or 5 times the speed of a SSD drive. With the 4TB option, many people could edit solely on the internal storage with no need for an external drive. I don’t see any 4TB NVME chips available commercially. I wonder if Apple is using a pair of 2TB chips?
