I guess it shouldn't surprise anyone that the only configs that ever get a discount are the ones that suck. People aren't going to buy a premium computer in 2023 with 8GB of shared ram or a 256gb SSD.

Apple should stop wasting everyone's time with these configs and set a good baseline (16gb/512gb) for every computer going forward.

M3 15" MBA will be dropping soon. Maybe as soon as October. This is why a lot of people, including myself, speculated that 15" MBA would launch with M3 at WWDC. Otherwise, there are only 4 months between M2 and M3 MBA 15".

The alternative is that Apple will delay introducing M3 for 15" MBA by a few months so they don't piss off the M2 buyers so soon.

For example:

October: M3 MBA 13", M3 Mac Mini, M3 iMac
January: M3 MBA 15", M3 Pro, M3 Max
WWDC 2024: M3 Ultra, maybe M3 "Extreme"

Evidently, it's not selling well.
I also wonder how many people ordering are actually opting for 16gb RAM upgrades, so the "stock" models are not selling well.

People are too obsessed with RAM. OSX is not Windows; you don't need 16Gigs for 'everyday' computing that MOST people do. And just for the record; a SWAP is not evil, it's a feature.
I think 8 GB is fine for many people, but I’m more annoyed that most 3rd party retailers don’t have any 16 GB models for sale. I think B&H does? Is there anywhere else?
