$200 for doubling the RAM (8GB more) seems excessive, but there’s no alternative. Going to 1TB is $400 more, which is suspiciously the same price a Samsung X5 NVMe SSD, the closest you’ll get on storage speeds.

You can buy Thunderbolt 3 SSDs now, which can hit full NVME speeds. A 1TB drive like this is nearly half the price Apple is asking for a 1TB SSD, and there’s the inherent issue of relying on a internal drive which may or may not fail that you can’t replace.

Good thing I ordered it on the 28th of this month. Might get the first batch that gets shipped out.

Hope this will work on it!

if your mac support Thunderbolt and your budget allows it, I would recommend this Samsung X5

otherwise a Samsung T5 is a good option and not so expensive
