It's starting to seem that the base models of the newest Apple products are a hard sell with their under-equipped RAM and storage.

I disagree — I’d say that this is a more-appropriate price for this computer than MSRP. The issue is upgrade pricing, and lack of sales on other configs.

This model is frequently on sale for $750, but if you want any more storage and RAM, you’re paying $1,400.

$750 MacBook Air? Easy sell.

$650 for an additional 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM? Bite me!

It might not be the newest model in the lineup, but the M1 Air is still capable of doing much, much more than just "common tasks."

Well even Grandma is going to fill up that 256MB with photos and videos in a year. there is NO USE CASE for 256 MB.
I'm a designer with tons of files and heavy programs ranging from 3D software and textures, the whole Adobe suite, etc. to stuff from my personal life like documents, presentations and downloaded music, and I have 130GB of the 256 free. Granted I don't have photos but storing photos locally is a recipe for disaster anyway. It really is perfectly manageable as long as you're storing things you don't need every single day non-locally (as you should be).

Yes you are way off base. That is what YOU did in college. That isn't what goes on today. 1TB minimum. MINIMUM.
What does he need the 1TB for?


PS I believe my mac SE has a 20meg drive. So, no, it's not what *I* did in college. :-)
