I just don't see 8GB of RAM on a new laptop over $1000 being a good buy in 2023. They should have started with 16 GB.

And the form factor and weight distribution is just wrong for the 'Air' moniker.
If it's wrong now, then it was wrong back when Steve Jobs introduced the original 13" MacBook Air in 2008.

The M2 15" MacBook Air is only 0.3 lbs (0.15 kg) heavier and fractionally wider and deeper than the original MacBook Air.

2008 13" MacBook Air specs
Height: 0.16 inches to 0.76 inches
Width: 12.8 inches
Depth: 8.94 inches
Weight: 3.0 lbs (1.36 kg)

2023 13" MacBook Air specs
Height: 0.44 inch (1.13 cm)
Width: 11.97 inches (30.41 cm)
Depth: 8.46 inches (21.5 cm)
Weight: 2.7 pounds (1.24 kg)

2023 15" MacBook Air specs
Height: 0.45 inch (1.15 cm)
Width: 13.40 inches (34.04 cm)
Depth: 9.35 inches (23.76 cm)
Weight: 3.3 pounds (1.51 kg)

It’s absurd, but that’s always been Apples MO. Entry level products no one really wants except the uneducated masses lol.
Entry level products are fine for non-professional work. This base model M1 Air is using 5.5 GB RAM with my usual workload, Safari, Mail, and Libreoffice. Storage is about 1/3 full.

If you are video editing you need more machine, so the Air is not the right choice. Ditto for developing software. The spreadsheet with 100,000 rows and thirty-odd columns lives on a Linux box with 16 GB and a terabyte of storage. The media collection and backups live on an old mini with 1 TB internal and 2 TB external. To each machine there is a purpose.
