While that’s not nearly as speedy as the built-in SSD that Apple uses, it’s a lot cheaper than paying Apple for additional storage: Apple charges $200 for every additional 512GB of storage, while prices for the Transcend JetDrive Lite 330 range from $60 for a 256GB card to $250 for a 1TB card.
When the first MacBook Pro computers with Apple Silicon were released last year, they included a functionality that Apple had previously left out of the line: an SD card reader. Transcend’s new JetDrive Lite is meant to lie flush with the side of a MacBook Pro, unlike standard SD cards, which protrude from the reader. It’s essentially an SD card that’s been chopped down to fit neatly with Apple’s laptops, allowing you to add 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of storage at 95 and 75 MB/s read/write rates, respectively.
Another advantage? This is actually an upgrade you can make after you buy a MacBook Pro. It’s virtually impossible to perform your own upgrades on the internal hardware, since the memory and storage are both soldered to the mainboard.
