It is a bloody crime that we cannot upgrade the storage or RAM afterwards.
Talking about reduce e-waste, Apple.

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.

hard drive way too small and 8gb of ram is not enough either.

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. ;-))
