I think the prices are going to come down quick on this. Lots of buyers pounced on the 14" pro for $1600. Those sales will cannibalize the M2 airs- however they will push out as many high margin 8gb 256gb laptops as they can- these laptops solve the majority of users who want something functional and don't care long-term.

Quote from fritzo :
iPad apps can only use like 5GB max right now. Don't see that changing much in the next few years. If anything this will be more future proof.

Just to compare, my 2015 IPad Air is still going strong and works very well, and it only has 1GB of RAM. Tablet storage isn't used quite the same way that desktop storage is used.
Sure... but this isn't an iPad?

Macbooks usually go on sale 20% off at some point in their first year, which would be $960 I wouldn't be surprised if we see a $950 price point by the end of the year.

I was tempted for the 14 pro but still want the Air's form factor with 16GB of ram. Running MS Office apps really does consume alot of memory, 8GB is just not enough head room. Teams was destroying my M1 before they released apple silicon support.

This.

I'm really waiting for a deal on the 16G 512GB version of this laptop, but all the sales have been on the base model or the 512GB version only.

I really don't need or want the bulk of the 14" pro.

I ordered a 16G 512GB version on the Apple Education website last week. The computer was discounted by $100, and the 16G upgrade was discounted by $20, so I saved $120, and also received a $150 Apple Gift card as a bonus. The gift card offer expired, but the $120 discount is still available.

Best Buy has also adjusted down their price to match Amazon. This is significant for Discover Card holders because BB accepts PayPal so with the 5% cashback offer the total = $996.55

RAM is very easy to upgrade - just buy another Macbook.

Is the performance of this significantly better than the 13.3" MBP with the M1? Just got the latter from costco for a little less last week

That reminds me of my past days when I was given/allocated just 8KB (8 x 1024 bytes) to compile and run my program. In 2022, we throw more memory and hardware at the programs to hide their inefficiencies, bad designs or code sloppiness :-) Wave
