Apple Stores Now Stock 14-Inch M3 MacBook Pro With 16GB of RAM

Apple retail stores now stock a configuration of the entry-level, M3 MacBook Pro with 16GB of unified memory.

The configuration, spotted by French website Consomac, is now highlighted as a standard option on Apple's website for $1,999. While the configuration itself is not new, since customers can upgrade from 8GB to 16GB of memory with a $200 build-to-order upgrade, the presence of a new default option offering this configuration allows customers to purchase an M3 MacBook Pro with 16GB of memory without any hardware upgrades. Most notably, it also means that the 16GB machine will be stocked by Apple retail stores and third-party retailers for the first time.

This being news worthy kinda exemplifies how insane it is that Apple sells a decently expensive entry-level config laptop today with a paltry 8GB of RAM.

I predict the M4 base RAM will be 12GB for the iMac, MacBook Air, Mac mini, and iPad Pros. 16GB for the MacBook Pro.

The 8 GB RAM and alternate app store fiascos makes me think Apple no longer wants me as a customer at all, for either iPhone or Mac…This company is throwing tantrums, going out of its way to avoid anything that helps developers or increases the value of its products.

Apple Silicon was an opportunity to change from the times when Apple was selling 5400 RPM HDDs in new entry-level 4K iMacs. I was flabbergasted at how slow those things ran. But Tim Cook’s Apple will always be Tim Cook’s Apple.

Just goes to show that the 8 GB “entry-level” MacBook Pro option isn’t a huge seller…

Can’t believe it, another consumer-friendly move by Apple!
I hope that is sarcasm...

SSDs and Batteries are parts that should be considered consumables and should be user-replacable. Yet another area where the EU is probably going to be ahead of the rest of the world on forcing companies' hands to return device ownership back to device owners.
It's shocking to see the level of Stockholm syndrome in Apple land..

Folks are like: "I don't WANT to be able to replace my battery or SSD! THANK YOU APPLE!!!"

I'm just like literally shaking my head reading this stuff sometimes.. ?
