You just proved his point. In 2013 4gb was plenty, yet you got a 8GB one and it's still working fine for 2021 demands. Getting 16 GB now will allow the laptop to work fine in 2029.

Just to be clear, anyone who buys a non-upgradeable laptop with 8GB ram for over $300 in 2021 or thinks that's even a point of contention, is an idiot.

I bought a 4GB laptop in 2011 and put an SDD and 8GB in it in late 2012. Just upgraded to a 512gb ssd and put W10E LTSC on last fall.

I've also got two pretty nice custom desktops, 9900K/3080 and 10400/2080 Ti.

Just a note, I just picked up this computer but I got the 32 Gb Ram version. The memory is soldered onto the back of the motherboard so upgrades are 100% not possible. The only thing upgradeable is the hard drive.

There is going to be a lot of idiots then with the way manufacturers are going.

Huh??
I think people need to Evaluate their Needs first before doing the usual complaining about how much RAM, SSD, Resolution, etc are in a laptop.

1. Clean-desk / KonMarie types.
You've got an always clean desk at work, the inbox only contains a few unread and unfinished messages, your pc desktop only has the files you're working on, and you efficiently single task throughout the day, finishing one task in one app before going to another, then closing out all the tabs and documents before moving on.

Raise your hands!

Yep, like my friend who's 5 year old Surface 4GB and my 2GB IdeaStick have literally nothing anchoring them down, we can still run 8gb, 4gb, even 2gb systems today and tomorrow just fine.

Absolutely no need to go above 8gb when windows + a single app runs fine in far less.

You don't even need to look beyond testing the keyboard and seeing if the screen and audio is nice.

2. The average consumer doing basic Office and school work.

Some multitasking, a few tabs open, dozens of files, hundreds of emails, thousands of photos, but generally closes apps and tabs, not the type to not follow good housekeeping advice when things get messy. Knows to shut down at the end of the day.

Just follow Microsoft. Their base systems all come with 8GB meaning that's what they expect you'll need at most to do well for a few years. This recently changed from 4gb last year, so it's fine at 8gb for the majority of average consumers.

Bestbuy, microcenter. You'll look at the specs for at least 8gb, test the keyboard, screen, sound, and generally be ok with anything on display.

You might splurge on features like 2-in-1 laptops/tablets with pen, 4k oled displays, lighter end 16xx/20xx nvidia for casual gaming.

3. Messy-desk types / heavy users / mad multitasking types

You know who you are.

You can't even see your desk.
A hundred tabs open you're not even looking at often.
Files everywhere.
Never closing apps.
A zillion emails burning up server resources because you've never deleted any.
Or
3d/video/photo/gaming type that devours ram.

You're not the average consumer. Mom would kick you out if your room looked like the pack rat dungeon it is. Even 16gb isn't enough.

This is where you'll be going to websites. Configuring that triple-raid ssd, 128gb RAM, 4k oled, etc workstation monster.

....

This laptop easily satisfies #1 and #2 type users.
Type #3, move on to notebookcheck.net and color kitted asus rog gaming laptops, lenovo ThinkPad p series workstations...


.


If you need a lighter laptop, lg gram 14 2lb $799 microcenter.com , lenovo x1, or the latest Samsung Galaxy Pro 1.92lbs oled!

Funny classification Smilie
Probably true that the majority does not need more than 8GB HOWEVER slickdealers are certainly not normal people ;-)
IMO, it is a poor value if a laptop is neither RAM-upgradable nor has 16GB.
Looking at this deal's spec, I'd say the i7 is unnecessary since the i5 is very close performance-wise. I recently purchased an XPS13 9310 with 16GB, 512GB SSD and i5 for $786 (after CB). Much better value than this deal.
