They were hoping you wouldn't math.

@l33tname Are those sectors total or just usable? How does over-provisioning play into this? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Write_amplification#Over-provisioning

@l33tname Total sectors as the NVMe device reports them. I suppose over-provisioning is the cause but every other manufacturer would sell it as a "500 Gb" drive if that overhead is never visible to the OS.

@l33tname Apple is special though. LOL Just look at their speed comparison during keynotes.

Recovery partition?

Hmm, this is indeed weird. It seems as though Apple's marketing department doesn't know that the computers they're selling contain 250GB and 500GB disks, not 256/512GB.
