Can anyone explain the purpose of a 32 gig NVMe SSD? I think it’s quite an apple thing to install such a stupidly tiny drive into a computer, but on the other hand it doesn’t seem right. This can’t be a system drive can it? But what else could it be? This is like an impractical, high-speed USB drive that requires disassembly of the computer to remove…

    Giving it a fancy name does not hide the fact it would be much better to replace the HDD with an SSD the same size. Typical Apple - marketing over substance.

      Well to be fair they rolled these out back when SSDs were much more expensive and typically you could choose to pay extra for a real SSD.

        2019? Even if that was the last year for it, it should’ve been replaced by SSD years earlier. Small SSDs for caching made sense in ~2011, but not much later.
