Mac Studio - Upgrade & Repair

Mac Studio

The Mac Studio launched in 2022 as a brand new model of desktop Mac, based around the M1 Max and M1 Ultra range of ARM based Apple Silicon CPUs. Aimed at professional users, the machine packs a huge amount of performance into a small form factor case.

The machine is aimed at a segment of users who 10 years previously would have been served by the Mac Pro, and who had moved on to high-end iMacs as the Mac Pro line was first neglected, and then retargeted at the very highest performance requirements with a price tag to match.

Like all ARM based Macs, RAM is non-upgradeable after purchase. And while the internal drives are technically removable, the way they work ties them to the individual machine in such a way as to make third party upgrades or replacement impossible. Expandability is therefore limited to external connections, with the Mac Studio having 4 x Thunderbolt 4 ports - Thunderbolt 4 is the same connector as Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C, and devices with these connections are fully compatible with the Mac Studio.

The Mac Studio does not have any PCI Express slots, but a PCI-Express chassis can be added via Thunderbolt if expansion cards are required.

      • Part Number 

        The MPN (Marketing Part Number), also sometimes called the model number, marketing number, order number or part number. This is the part number under which Apple sold this particular Mac model. Only base configurations have part numbers, while Macs sold with various build to order/configure to order options do not have them. What we consider a single Mac may have multiple part numbers, which may refer to different specifications of RAM, drive size, or case colour that were offered as base options. Part numbers also differ by country or region.

        In modern Macs it is usually an 8 or 9 digit code, with the last 2 characters being "/A" or occasionally "/B". The one or two characters immediately before the "/" depend on country or region - "B" is the UK, "LL" the USA, etc. We represent this portion as "xx".

      • EMC Number 

        EMC numbers cover a narrow group of Macs, or sometimes an individual machine. There are exceptions, but usually models that share an EMC number were released at the same time, and share all attributes apart from minor differences in CPU and other internal components. In a very few cases, Macs of the same model were sold with multiple different EMC numbers.

        The EMC number is usually a 4 digit numerical code, though in a few cases there are additional characters.

      • Model Identifier 

        Model Identifiers often cover a narrow range of Macs. Usually one particular type of Mac, with a specific screen size, released at a particular time. Though in some cases a later revision that is substantially similar, will carry the same Model ID.

        Staring with the Intel Macs released in 2006, Model IDs were in the format MacNameX,Y where MacName is a recognisable Mac model (iMac, MacBookPro etc.), and the X and Y are numbers.

        However in 2022, a couple of years after the ARM switchover, Apple started using the format MacX,Y - the X and Y are numbers, but the "Mac" is the same across different models.

        Old pre-Intel (PowerPC) Macs were almost all PowerMacX,Y or PowerBookX,Y (the exception being the very first iMac, which is: "iMac,1").

      • Model Number 

        Model numbers, also sometimes called family numbers, are an identifier that often cover a fairly wide range of Macs. In cases where the fundamental design of a Mac has remained mostly unchanged, but incremental upgrades have been made to internal components, a single Model Number can cover more than 20 individual Macs, released over several years. Other Model Numbers are unique to a single machine.

        It is usually a 5 character code in the format AXXXX, where the Xs are numerals. Some very old Macs have a Model Number that starts with an "M" rather than "A".
