The worst thing about the MacBook Pro’s non-replaceable SSD

MacBook Pro 2016 SSD Data

Apple’s 2016 MacBook Pro has received plenty of criticism from all sorts of potential buyers, even though the machine is probably one of the best laptops you can buy. Some people hate the lack of ports, while others would love to be able to add more RAM to the laptop or upgrade the storage in the future.

If you buy an entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, you’ll at least be able to replace the SSD yourself. But Touch Bar versions come with soldered SSDs. That means users are stuck with the initial storage, and a discovery tells us that’s a rather scary prospect when it comes to data recovery.

Spotify has been quietly killing your SSD’s life for months

Spotify SSD Bug Fix
Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services out there. But it turns out it’s also a dangerous one, at least for your SSD’s life. The app has been quietly killing your SSD’s life for months by writing massive amounts of data over and over, even when the service was in idle mode.

Upgrading the new MacBook Pro is still a major pain

MacBook Pro Late 2016 SSD Upgrade
We know that Apple’s MacBook Pro aren’t user upgradeable for the most part. What you buy is what you get, so choose wisely when ordering one. The only thing you can replace is the SSD, recent reports have shown. But don’t expect hassle-free upgrades. Apple still doesn’t want you to open the MacBook Pro, as a teardown of the “dumb” MacBook Pro (late 2016) shows.

Is the brand new MacBook Pro upgradeable?

MacBook Pro 2016 RAM SSD Upgrades
A brand new MacBook Pro version is on sale in Apple stores and on Apple’s site, and the laptop isn’t cheap. That’s not necessarily unexpected, considering that Apple has always sold premium notebooks for premium prices. But before you give Apple your money you should know that you have to spend extra cash on certain dongles so that your other PC peripherals still work with the new machine. There’s also the question of upgradability to consider. MacBooks have a better overall life than their counterparts. But does the 2016 generation let customers change RAM or SSD?

A 60TB SSD is such glorious, beautiful overkill

Largest SSD
No one, not even the most dedicated sysadmin, can justify buying a 60TB SSD. That much data is better stored on a tape deck, or in a giant planet-sized supercomputer à la Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. But Seagate clearly disagrees, because it's gone ahead and built it anyway. Let's try and put 60TB into perspective for you. By my back-of-the-calculator math, that's enough for 85,000 TV episodes, 14,000 movies, or 80 years of regular-quality MP3 music. That is, scientifically speaking, quite a lot of music.

A 4TB SSD is perfect for hoarding old Steam games

4TB SSD: Samsung
I don't have enough stuff to justify owning a 4TB solid-state drive, but that doesn't stop me from wanting one quite badly. All the 4TB drives on the market to date have been designed for use in data centers, and the performance (and price!) makes them unsuitable for sticking in your battlestation. The latest addition to Samsung's popular range of 850 SSDs changes all that. The new $1,500 4TB keeps the same performance specs as the smaller-capacity models, while granting you the ability to fit even the largest collection of rare anime onto one disk.

You Can Upgrade a Macbook Faster Than You Can Boil an Egg

There’s one big drawback to Apple’s thin, svelte laptop: once you pull the trigger on a Macbook, you’re generally stuck with the specs for life. So when a company claims to offer an idiot-proof SSD upgrade, it’s worth checking out.

The world’s fastest SSD drives launch this summer

Seagate SSD 10GB Second

Solid state drives (SSD) make for wonderful additions to any computer. Doing something as simple as replacing a regular hard disk drive (HDD) with an SSD will get you a massive return when it comes to speediness and performance. Flash-based SSD memory is significantly faster than HDDs and can revive old computers regardless of operating system. It’s probably safe to say that once you go SSD, you’ll never look back.

As fast as SSDs already are they're about to get a whole lot faster when Seagate releases the fastest-ever SSD this summer. Unfortunately, you won't be able to buy one even after they're released.

There’s Finally a Way to Upgrade Macbook Storage

When I bought my Macbook Pro a year ago, I was feeling so internally guilty about spending $1500 on a laptop that I only paid for 128GB of storage, a decision I’ve regretted about three times per day ever since. This solution isn’t cheap, but at least it will stop me whining.
