Is the SSD upgradable?
Does anyone know if the SSD can be upgraded in this notebook? Thanks!
Is this a good question?
The long-awaited refresh of the popular MacBook Air, featuring Intel's Core i5 processors, an updated Retina Display, and numerous other changes and updates. Released November 7th, 2018.
Both the RAM and flash storage (SSD) are both soldered to the logic board
Apple does not offer any laptop systems with serviceable RAM or flash storage any more. All of the systems now use the T2 chip which uses raw flash chips vs a removable SSD. The reason is two fold the first is Apple can make a still faster I/O design than what a SSD can offer and even encrypt it! This is a good thing!!
But! What Apple still needs to do is make a dual drive design laptop which has the secure enclave the T2 & Flash storage it now offers and a second drive for the deeper storage within the real MacBook Pro (not what Apple has now in the current MacBook Pro’s) for the real working Pro’s.
So if I were to buy a new MacBook Air and would want to have 1.5 TB SSD, I should choose this size of drive at the time of purchase.
Otherwise, I can’t upgrade the 128 GB SSD to something higher in the future right?
