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…

    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 Even if that was the last year for it, it should’ve been replaced by SSD years earlier.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.
