Just upgraded to 16 GB RAM and 256 GB storage and it's now 'only' about $1500 with tax included.

Didn't buy because this is still too much for what it is. Storage and RAM don't cost that much!
Adorama was selling a 13.6 inch M2 MacBook Air 16/256 for $999 ('https://slickdeals.net/f/17162368-apple-macbook-air-13-6-m2-16gb-ram-256gb-ssd-midnight-999-99?page=4#commentsHeader') (sale eneded last night). Of course, MR didn't post about it because no affiliate commission.

Warning: All 8GB BS.
If 8GB is like 16GB maybe 256GB is like 512GB SSD.

I don't see how anyone who needs an M2 laptop performance will be ok with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD, in 2023-2024.
Clearly I am not Apple's target audience as even if I had more than 10 euros in my account I wouldn't buy one at these prices, but this is ridiculous. If they keep the BS upgrade prices as is, at least bring the tiers one level up, or down, whatever is the proper one. Keep the BS upgrade prices and starting prices as is, but have the base models with 512GB of SSD and 16GB of RAM. Else it's an insult.

Guess that $250 can go to a good external drive or iCloud storage subscription, since this device has so little storage space for such an expensive laptop. :p
