Good news - the fear mongering around this issue, now nearly 2 1/2 years old, has not played out as predicted! The article linked, like many at the time of the M1 release, speaks of a hypothetical situation that simply isn't happening. At my org, of the nearly 150 M1/8GB machines none have run into this issue. We'd be seeing rumblings of a class action lawsuit at this point if that was the case, I'd imagine, but actual issues as you describe are still rare (and I've been looking).

Now the reduced write speed in the 256GB M2 models is a bit of a bummer - if you research a little further you'll see that they aren't using the same components between M1 and M2. Sure, still the same SOC architecture, but different SSD chips in the 256 models.
These are the same as the edu prices 🔥🔥
I did some Google searches and can't find anything specific about TBW on the m2 version of the Mac mini. Perhaps you could link something instead of an insinuation?
