If only this included 16GB of RAM, which should be standard by now. Cook and his endless penny pinching!

I simply can't understand how 16Gb is not the minimum config for any of these. Owe I realize it's a money maker for Apple, but the fact you can't even upgrade them on your own anymore is just plain pathetic.

Yes, I have. Daily for work actually. After a month of use I requested a new machine with 16GB. World of difference. I work in IT and most of what I do is browser based cloud\virtualization stuff so all real work is being done on the server side of things. The 8GB machine couldn't handle web, e-mail, office, teams etc. all being used at the same time and deliver a satisfactory result.

I'd have to respectfully disagree with your assessment on this. My big issue, for home use, is I tend to keep Macs 6-10 years. 8GB will in no way shape or form be acceptable a few years down the road and it's simply obnoxious of Apple to ship a machine of this caliber with anything less than 16-32 as a base.
Especially when the RAM cannot be upgraded by the user, after purchase.

My 2017 iMac has 32GB of RAM. I currently have 13 webpages open and that is it. It is using 15GB of RAM. Yes, it is an older machine but it is all about future proofing and 16GB would take care of that. It is pathetic on Apple's part, period.

16gb is needed for Windows. 8GB is fine for MacOS if you stick to email, web, photos, MS Office and all the other stuff most people use an Air for. Remember that like iMacs, most Air customers just need a computer to get life stuff done. 8GB is fine for them.
See my post above. 8GB is not enough in 2023 for future proofing, period.
