256gb is pretty much useless except as something to surf the web. 512gb isn't much better. Apple's storage prices are out of hand, and iCloud storage isn't an answer - its an additional charge, a penalty for not paying the ridiculous upcharge that Apple wants for reasonable onboard storage.

It's a bit silly to say that 8GB/256GB is 'pretty much useless'. I have an M1Pro 16GB/1TB and for the most part, the base M2 Air runs just the same. Yep - That's up to and including 4K video editing for 10-20 minutes projects in Final Cut Pro. I can get the M2 Air to slow down when I start doing excessive things like opening up all my apps at the same time and ridiculous numbers of browser tabs etc.. but even then it remains perfectly usable.

Yes - Apple DOES overcharge for RAM and SSD upgrades, but it doesn't mean that the base spec. machines aren't perfectly fine for most people. Geeks like us who hang around MacRumors are outliers. We do more and want more from our computers. People like my wife use their laptop for email, web, social, photos, music, some MS Office and the base spec. is fantastic for that.

How can there be "multiple" best-ever prices? Isn't it only possible for one price to be the "best-ever"?

EDIT: @sw1tcher kindly clarified it for me below. I still think the way the headline is written is confusing. But at least I've got a handle on it now.

Every day we seem to get another "Best Ever" price

Odd

Not selling well?

Sure is a shame none of these base models can have their RAM or SSD upgraded after the fact.
Basically just waiting to be offloaded at cost or head to a landfill

Nice work Apple
:confused:

I agree. Why is that almost every time a base model goes on sale, someone has to insert a hyperbolic post about how you can't doing anything but surf the web with this configuration?

Meanwhile, millions and millions of people use the base configuration everyday for college, work, and home, and they are delighted with their computers. Apple enjoys a high level of customer satisfaction and loyalty, and this would not be possible if the base models were useless.

I have zero problems with my base M2 MBA. I don't need a huge amount of local storage because we have the 2 TB family iCloud plan that we share with 5 people. All devices are set to optimize local storage for photos and documents. Everything is backed up. Zero problems.

My kids went through undergrad and grad school with base configuration MBAs. Zero problems. College students write lots of papers and reports. They frequently do statistical analysis (R) and modeling with spreadsheets. Class presentations are common. They certainly did more than just surf the web with their computers.
