Wow this is actually a very good deal as I bought one a few months back and have no regrets but praise for the unit. It runs cool to the touch, the screen is beauriful, and the battery life is excellent!

I can live with the M2 at a discount, but not when it gets into the $1300 range with those specs.

Retailers really should push Apple to get rid of the undesirable configurations. Nobody is going to buy a new premium laptop with a 256gb SSD or 8GB of RAM.
The problem is people trust Apple telling them 8GB is plenty for their consumer use. When in reality, it’s not. The RAM is a far bigger problem than the SSD size. At least can connect an external SSD and be fine. Stuck with a non functioning MacBook when 8GB of RAM is no longer supported - maybe three years. It’s way too late for this whole thing.

One could say selling 256/8GB computers is a deliberate undermining of working towards a sustainable economy.

this is because of the heat apple is getting from tests disproving 8gb is adequate....

doesn't matter what storage size when you have 8gb RAM, I would be surprised if apple keeps an 8gb option in march.

Having a hard time with moving inventory!

Not necessarily. These kinds of discounts are not that unusual for Amazon. They have discounted the MacBook Air a number of times over the years, sometimes even more than $200. In November 2019, for example, they were offering $300 off (on sale for $799) the new/updated MacBook Air with True Tone display which had just been released a few months earlier.

Was that for Black Friday/Cyber Monday or a general sale? Right now this is just a general sale, hence my comment.

It was a BF/CM sale. A reason I had specifically mentioned that one was because it was an even greater discount ($300 off) than the current $200 off. However, my point was that Amazon has discounted the MacBook Air a number of times over the years (including $200 discounts like today) and has done so at various times of the year (i.e., "general sales", not necessarily just November/December holiday sales).

They need to raise it on all M3 models.
