image for RAM Upgrade Cost for Cheapest 13-Inch MacBook Pro Doubles

The price tag to upgrade the RAM of the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro has doubled, opening the door for similar cost increases to affect other Apple computers.

Apple quietly made the price adjustment without any official announcement, taking the price to upgrade the RAM of the cheapest model of the recently released 13-inch MacBook Pro from $100 to $200, as first spotted by MacRumors.

The RAM upgrade to bring the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro to 16GB from 8GB is just one of the many options available to customers upon checkout of the laptop on Apple’s online store.

Other options include upgrades to the computer’s processor, storage, and pre-installed software, all of which have retained their price tags.

Apple’s adjusted price of the RAM upgrade is unusual not only because it is an increase, compared with the traditional decrease, but also because the 13-inch MacBook Pro was only released earlier this month.

Apple has apparently not made similar adjustments to the RAM upgrades of other Mac computers, as different machines are equipped with different types of RAM.

The entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro carries a base price tag of $1,299, but customers who want Intel’s 10th-generation Ice Lake processors will need to shell out at least $1,799. »
