It is a bloody crime that we cannot upgrade the storage or RAM afterwards.

That's a damned good price, but for me the deal breaker is being stuck with 256 Gb storage. I'm less worried about the RAM.

What a deal! My family has this exact model. Even with two diff user accounts (fast user switching is awesome), we've NEVER had a RAM issue.

(You can get this price almost daily in the Apple refurb store, except you can get the two other colors. ;-))
