Apple’s M1 Max Mac Studio sees $500 off clearance discount
While we wait for new desktop M3 Macs, Expercom is offering one of the best discounts we have ever seen period by marking down the original Mac Studio. Getting the clearance treatment to really set the pace for the holiday shopping season, the M1 Max Mac Studio with 32GB memory is now marked down to $1,499 at the Apple-authorized retailer. It drops from the usual $1,999 price tag and marks a new all-time low. This is an extra $100 under the previous best price and beats our last mention by another $200. Dive into our hands-on review for a closer look, and then head below as we take a closer look at how it compares to the new M2 Max edition.
Apple’s original Mac Studio still arrives as the most powerful M1 machine available, thanks to a series of redesigns both inside and out. For starters, there is the much taller form factor that sits in the same footprint as Apple’s other desktop headless Macs. That enables a wide array of I/O like four Thunderbolt ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 4K HDMI, and more. Then there’s the M1 Max chip and its 10-core design at the center of the package for improved performance.
