8gb ram Frown
With Apples unified ram, it actually outperforms windows machines with 16gb. High ram swapping with m1 chips is something to be concerned about tho

Better to buy from Best Buy or Amazon? Any benefits for one over the other?

Quote from SlickSmiles :
That should be normal price for only 8GB RAM in 2021 🤢🤢🤮
Except it's not the same type of RAM. That's like saying and 500GB SSD should be the same price as a 500GB HDD. This RAM is first off on the SoC so latency is greatly reduced. Also, as it's unified memory, no longer do chunks of the memory need to be reserved for specific components such as video, CPU, and cache. Everything can access any unused portion which means more is available than in a typical 8GB setup.

Just for a personal POV, using 8GB I've never run into an issue with multiple tabs, youtube, and iMovie running. I'm not a super power use on my MBA so I'm sure there is a subset of users who really need 16GB, but 8GB on this isn't a pariah of a spec.

its always better to wait if you can these M1 prices have been so "volatile" in a sense even trying to buy one used is still up in the "Air" 😅 and no you can't upgrade the RAM on these not unless you can solder.
