$190 difference for an additional 256GB of storage.

$190 can buy you a high-end 2TB SSD or a low-end 4TB SSD.

It's a shame there's no option via third party resellers to up the RAM on the M2 models to 16 GB for an uncharge off of these discounts. For casual home users 8GB is fine but users doing anything beyond basic email and web browsing would benefit from 16.

Probably why these are on sale. You'd have to be bonkers to buy this system with 8GB RAM except for casual use. Just Apple being cheap. I'd have one if the 16GB/512GB wasn't so maddeningly expensive.
