Costco Computers Unadvertised Sales UPDATE for May 24th. While Supplies Last @ https://www.costco.com/computers....eyword=OFF

-
Lots of new recent price drops today (5/24) here. I'm marking the most recent price drops with a diamond tag so that they can be seen at a glance. Green diamonds are the newest price drops from May 22 to date, while orange diamonds were price drops that started on May 19th up until the 21st. Also there are still a lot of previously front page computers on sale as well. Usually those are marked by the star tags, which indicate anything that I might think are a good value. Happy researching and buying!

I am not associated with Costco, nor am I associated with Slickdeals. I enjoy transforming mass quantities of data and shaping it into something useful. If you're familiar with Marie Kondo or TheHomeEdit, this is just me re-organizing products into a nicer, easier to view format and manage.
I automatically calculate the highest discount percentages, sort them, categorize them, create navigation links, find the latest price drops, mark the highest quality products, and note the best deals to the best of my abilities. In addition to that, I link products to their relevant discussions if applicable. Please enjoy Smilie
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

"In" for what? What purpose does your post serve? Confused
I generally have 200 tabs open, as well as other memory intensive programs. The M1 laptops are amazing (I use one), but the M1 isn't magical and doesn't change physics. The memory for programs lives somewhere, either in RAM or on the SSD. Once the RAM is full, the extra memory needed is stored on the SSD. In other words, if you need a lot of RAM, there will be many writes/swaps to the SSD, even if it's nearly instantaneous and barely noticeable to the user. If I were to try to use 8GB of RAM I would likely be writing hundreds of GB to the page file daily, wearing out the SSD prematurely, possibly within 2-3 years. Even with 16GB of RAM I still have heavier writes than I'd prefer.

The solution isn't "use fewer tabs" or "close programs" since I know my optimal work flow and use a device that can handle it. I understand the desire for 16GB of RAM (or even more).
Because MacBook Air configurations with 16 GB RAM are available and sold by apple, they just aren't available at Costco...if 16 GB RAM was completely unnecessary in a MacBook Air then why does Apple make a version with it in general?

Also some people just want to future-proof their laptop

For real. I'd love a 16gb air option.

I see a lot of people all the time asking for 16gb ram macbook airs. What are they planning to do with these things? I've had no problem with my base macbook air running 20 tabs in a browser along with ableton live or logic pro with any reasonable amount of plug-ins. This combination of programs is very processor and RAM intensive and works way better than my windows desktop. The m1 architecture does not use RAM like people may expect.

I just got a steam deck and I'm really regretting not going for the 512

This thing is only 720p - games need to be better about only using textures appropriate for screen

Because MacBook Air configurations with 16 GB RAM are available and sold by apple, they just aren't available at Costco...if 16 GB RAM was completely unnecessary in a MacBook Air then why does Apple make a version with it in general?

Also some people just want to future-proof their laptop
