How can u call yourself Apple, let alone any other company in 2019 while offering a 128gb hard drive.

I bought my first MacBook in 2009.

It had 128 gb.

My needs require more, this was entry level storage 12 years ago, it’s overpriced, and not upgradable.

What’s right about it?

I lived with a 128GB Macbook Air (2015) for 3 years. Agreed. I never used more than 50% of it. Most of my data is in the cloud and selectively synced with OneDrive. Streamed music and TV. That device was one of my most favorite laptops. Remote into my Windows machine at work to program while on the road? Awesome. 10+ hours of battery life? Awesome.

Wish I had kept it.

That said, I don't support, in 2019, a $950 laptop having a 128GB SSD. It should be 256GB at LEAST.
