Apple has lowered the costs of upgrades for solid-state drives (SSDs) inside of Macs that didn’t receive upgrades at the company’s MacBook Pro event last week, according to a new report.

Generally price cuts are on the order of $100-$200, based on what MacRumors is reporting. Here are the new upgrade costs for different Mac models:

  • 2015 13-inch MacBook Pro: $200 extra for 256GB, $400 extra for 512GB, $800 extra for 1TB
  • 2015 15-inch MacBook Pro: $200 extra for 512GB, $600 extra for 1TB
  • 13-inch MacBook Air: $200 extra for 512GB
  • 21.5-inch 1.6GHz iMac: $200 extra for 256GB
  • 21.5-inch 2.8GHz iMac: $200 extra for 256GB
  • 21.5-inch Retina 4K iMac: $200 extra for 256GB, $400 extra for 512GB
  • 27-inch Retina 5K iMac with 1TB hard drive: $200 extra for 256GB, $400 extra for 512GB
  • 27-inch Retina 5K iMac with 1TB Fusion Drive: $100 extra for 256GB, $300 extra for 512GB, $700 extra for 1TB
  • 27-inch Retina 5K iMac with 2TB Fusion Drive: $200 extra for 512GB, $600 extra for 1TB
  • Quad-Core Mac Pro: $200 extra for 512GB, $600 extra for 1TB
  • 6-Core Mac Pro: $200 extra for 512GB, $600 extra for 1TB
  • 2.6GHz Mac Mini: $200 extra for 256GB
  • 2.8GHz Mac Mini: $200 extra for 512GB, $600 extra for 1TB

Of course, this is on top of the base price of the computers.

Still, this may be welcome news to some Mac devotees who were disappointed with what Apple announced — and didn’t announce — last week.
