New MacBook Air and base model MacBook Pro with significant upgrades, a second Singapore Apple retail store-unless you're a fan of the 12-inch MacBook (which Apple just killed), this has been a good week for Mac users.
But there's more good news. As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple has also dropped the prices for many of its SSD options for the Mac, in some cases as much as half. This storage upgrade price reduction applies to both Mac desktops and portables.
For example, the 4TB SSD option for the latest top-end 15-inch MacBook Pro used to cost S$3,920-now, it's S$1,960. Put another way: if you were to kit out this 15-inch MacBook Pro (2.4GHz 8-core 9th-gen Intel Core i9, 32GB RAM, Radeon Pro Vega 20, 4GB SSD) it now costs S$7,289 instead of the S$9,249 barely two months ago.
Of course, what I'm painting here is the extreme scenario. Depending on the Mac and the SSD capacity you're looking at, the price drop may not be as drastic or none at all (e.g. the price for the first upsize doesn't seem to be affected).
I usually say anytime is a good time to buy a Mac-but today is definitely a better time than last week.
