Many, many years ago I was in line at an electronics store and the guy in front of me was returning his Mac. Being a fan boy I asked him why? And his reply was, "I spent a lot of money on this computer, more than any PC ... when I started it up, within hours I was getting 'out of memory errors' ... I'm not dealing with that shxt" He bought an entry level Mac (still very expensive) and Apple cheated him on the RAM needed to even run well on day 1!

Fast forward to 2022 ... Apple's base models solely exist to be able to claim 'Prices start at $xxxx', Apple continues to use this strategy, cheating people on RAM and storage (they took three years too many to finally get rid of their cheap to procure spinning hard drives!) Maybe one day all Macs will have no less than the RAM and storage needed for a great user experience (IMO Today's minimum should be 16GB of RAM and 512GB drives) ... especially since on chip RAM is vastly cheaper to make ... and users can no longer upgrade it!

Why can’t they just default to 512 GBs?

That’s a pretty good deal. I would go for the 8 core GPU model if you’re doing anything more than web browsing and office docs because it has an upgraded cooling system, Touch ID, Ethernet jack and a probably a few other things I can’t remember.

Edit: I’m not sure if it’s a mistake with the article or Amazon is being weird but the 8 core GPU model that’s listed in the article for $1349.99 is showing up on Amazon when I click that link as $1449.99. That would be $100 more.
Because Bezos knows you want it. ?

I tell you what, if the ipad 27" ends up also being an ipad on a stick, I'm done with all this. The last thing I want. I don't like the colours of the 24", or the design, one bit, but then it's probably not made for me. I hope it's more like the 27 imac pro or current 27 but with better heat handling.

I've used Macs for a real long time and I'm just never satisfied with base configuration Macs. Not because they can't do anything when you buy them, thats the only time they really shine. Once you get a few OS updates and have all your programs in them and try to do real work on them instead of content consumption regularly, they start to show their age pretty quick. And the low drive space means you could run out of space long before the computer is no longer useful.

Max ram and larger drivers are the best way to future proof your investment but Apple made that more difficult by forcing you to pay them instead of pay as you go.

If you spec all the imacs (they all come with 8gb ram) to 16gb ram and 512gb drive, this is what the prices look like.

NEW IMAC w/less ports $1,700

NEW IMAC $1,900

IMAC 27in i5 $2,200

IMAC 27 i7 $2,500

IMAC 27 i9 $2,900

New iMacs on sale are a good deal for now but you are better off selling it after the next model comes out and getting the newer model than keeping a machine with base specs long term now that its impossible to upgrade the internals.
