Apple’s SSD lag is once again present in the Mac mini and Macbook Pro
We at Macworld recommend that prospective avoid purchasing the entry-level configuration of any Mac. It normally does not have enough room for most people; even those who depend heavily on iCloud or other cloud storage may face space restrictions in the future.
The entry-level versions of Apple’s most recent Mac minis and Macbook Pros, which went on sale Tuesday, have another drawback that you may want to avoid. While the new $599 M2 Mac mini is a fantastic notebook at an exceptional price, it conceals an unpleasant secret we’ve seen before: a slower SSD. According to MacRumors, testing of the computer shows that the 256GB SSD is up to 50% slower than the 256GB SSD in the M1 model it replaces.
