512 GBs would have been a better value. Someone at factory needs to override these arcane minimum specs and just spit out 1 TB.

I love that green color, wish it had the darker green on the front though, instead of something that looks like an 80's beach house.

I know this doesn't apply to everyone, but wanted to point out the offer is basically matching the higher education pricing.

Yeah, the Fusion Drive was gimped when they went from 128GB to 32GB for the SSD portion. If they stuck with 128 or more, then most of the time the entire OS and common accessed apps and files could reside completely on the SSD portion of the Fusion, so you didn't notice the slow access of the spinning drive for day to day tasks.
I definitely noticed it when I switched from my (2014?) MBP, spotlight and booting taking a moment to load. It made some sense to have Fusion with SSD prices back then but nowadays it's absurd to not start at at least 512GB SSD

This is the hobbled first gen M1 machine. The next gen will "solve" the problems that were created on purpose: too little RAM, too small SSD, low ceiling for SSD options, too few usb-c ports, etc
Some of those problems are self-inflicted. Apple has always been stingy with base configurations, which boggles the mind if "user's experience is everything at Apple". They could have easily offered a 512GB SSD as the base configuration but chose not too, even though 512 SSD is dirt cheap. It wasn't too long ago that a pure spinning drive was the base configuration for the previous iMac.
