If you are spending this much and not upgrading the RAM, you are doing it wrong. Looks like they are all locked 8gb configs. Typically those are the ones heavily discounted because no on wants them.

They never mention RAM because it’s triggering to imagine a $1400+tax for a laptop with 8GB RAM!

The M1s are still more than good enough. Nothing I've seen about the M3 makes we want to upgrade from my M1 14inch Pro. M3 is too soon after M2 and feels like another incremental upgrade.

I ordered the base M3 Pro 18/512 MBP from Apple using educational discount for $1,849. I'd rather have the M3 MBP upgraded to 24GB for $1,859 with educational discount, heck maybe I'd upgrade the SSD too, but nobody is stocking upgraded models it and it would take at least a week longer to get from Apple. If Apple is so desperate to milk customers with expensive RAM and SSD upgrades, I don't get why it is so much harder to find them for sale.
Yeah… This is a major annoyance of mine.

It’s evident that Apple has changed in recent years when it comes to pricing strategy. Brand new products are often immediately on sale for 10% off from major retailers, which effectively reduces the starting price by $100-200.

Meanwhile, if you like the base model, but want to upgrade either the RAM or storage (an upgrade which would cost under $50 in a normal computer and virtually all Macs until the early 2010s), you’re paying a minimum of $300 more.

An M1 MacBook Air with 256gb SSD and 8gb RAM can be bought on sale for $750, but if you want to up the storage and RAM to to 1tb and 16gb, your only option (aside from buying pre-owned) is to pay over twice the price from Apple ($1600)

And at THAT point, you’re paying the MSRP for the latest M3 MBP, which is now on sale for $200 less, at $1400. So you might as well get the M3 MBP, but wait!! You want that 1tb of storage and more RAM? Ah sorry, your only option is to order that from Apple for $2000.

It just makes little sense from a consumer perspective and it makes it difficult to make a purchase without feeling screwed in some capacity.

But, but, but, several people on MR think 8GB of ram is plenty in 2023.
