Lol, insane pricing. What’s the point of modularity when you’re still paying Apple tax on components? Wonder if there will be third party solutions at some point.

Insane considering how much SSD prices are. I get an Apple Tax, but this is completely over the top.

This is truly Apple's dream come true: sell proprietary SSDs that are only compatible with 1 single proprietary computer which cannot use any other kind of storage! But also increase the price of the computer in the meantime, of course.
