That's Apple and how they became a multi-Trillion dollar corp.
Why does the 16gb model cost over an extra 200+ for 8gb more of ram? I've been eyeing picking this up but hard to justify the price difference in comparison to the 8gb model. Am I missing something?
Because they can? Why do you think Apple moved to a soc where you can't upgrade ram/SSD yourself. Now you are force to pay $200 for extra 8 GB ram. How do you think they became the first trillion dollar company?

From what I've read, with the M1 it's like the performance of twice the ram in a regular laptop. Don't know if that holds true, but that would mean that it's more like a 16gb ram difference. But I agree, it's too much money for too little upgrade.

Yep. I remember back in the day when memory for a PC was insanely expensive. But Apple seems to be able to charge a nice premium on these things.

Same reason a jump from 256GB to 512GB used to cost $200-250 in a laptop/desktop from Apple...despite costing $50 difference OEM. Apple gouges anyone who needs over the baseline spec because they believe they have a captive audience.

Its mostly marketing BS. What M1 can do is share the content of the ram with both CPU and GPU. So in a situation where you need to load an video into ram. Both CPU and GPU can access it which helps with video editing.

Can we see the price dropping to around $650 within half year? I want to replace my mbp 2014 16GB which is not able to upgrade to the new coming MacOS.

I agree the upgrade is overpriced, but there are legitimate power and performance advantages to integrating the memory into the SoC. That's why smartphones uses SoC and Apple has generated some impressive performance, heat and power efficiency gains through use of the SoC in Macs. Again, not disagreeing that they do charge a premium for their upgrade options that isn't a great value, but it isn't just Tim Cook rubbing his hands and going "LULz, profit!"

It's probably closer to 12 GB in certain on workload. Apple also added a top notch SSD which helps a lot when you are swapping files from ram from storage and vice versa.
