It will be a while before I have a spare $249. :(

Have wondered about this. Windows offers a defrag tool which I used in versions prior to 7. So macOS has no such facility? I reckon I can do it someday and use Carbon Copy Cloner.

I have replaced a standard with an SSD and it makes a huge difference in

time passes on the mechanical hard drives the data becomes less and less 
contiguous.  This is why reformatting and restoring once in a while makes a 
difference.

SSD doesn’t do this either.

  Did you a standard hard drive with the SSD? I am more and more curious to 
know if a lot of the Voiceover chatter would go away because the Mac loads 
things faster.

I wonder about the memory as well.  The Mac Pro can be upgraded considerably 
maybe that’s the product they want to move but you’d think they would give more 
memory options to the laptops.

 Its too bad Apple does not consider memory above 16 to be worthy. Well I am 
putting a 1tb SSD drive on my Santa wish list.

Hi E.T, I would highly recommend the SSD upgrade.  Will make a massive

On the memory side, I believe it was 2013 when the change took place.
The Laptops are all built this way, I believe the IMac is still
upgradable via a small door on the back.

Scott,
When did Apple switch to non removable memory and does this apply to
all Mac models?

I have a mid 2012 which I upgraded to 16 but at the time did not
know I could go higher.

At this point, if I do anything, it would be an SSD drive.

Kevin, I’m with you and I wish you could take the MacBook pro up higher
as well.

When the memory was removable I was able to upgrade a 2011 model to 32
GB.  Would be nice to have 32 or 64 in the current line.
