I think it's not ethical to link with MacBook Pro 13 sales, with its faulty keyboard. The problem was created by Apple in a first place, however anyone who's mentioning 13` without mentioning its keyboard issues are acting dishonestly.

Please redact the post to include warning about the uncomfortable and faulty keyboard with wrong shape arrow keys and lack of esc key.

Pretty tempted as my current 2016 has developed flexgate on the display just weeks after I got the keyboard and battery replaced. Might as well get the display replaced and sell the machine and move on. I don't do much on my computer anymore that would tax the machine so no point in waiting for a refresh other than to maybe save more money on the 2019 model.

Apple should remove such storage options like 128GB in 2020. My phone has more storage and it’s 18 months old. Why give anyone even a chance to point out how far behind they get with some old products. Who manages their product configurations?

This exact story seems to be getting posted about once a week. It event draws out the same commenters making the same comments.

It annoys me to no end that these sales never include models with 16GB.
I've always considered 16GB the floor for RAM for any computer. I recently gave my wife an 8GB MBA. It runs fine for everything she does, but her needs are pretty basic. 8GB is more capable than most people realize.

I think this is a tactic by Apple so you buy the product from them at a premium price. The lower models are mass-market and aren't as profitable as the upgraded models which Apple overcharges for (additional RAM, larger SSDs etc).

Oh! Haha for a moment I thought you were referring to the SSD and was like "what the HECK?!"
Hey, I need my Pong!

Oh, I agree, and I’m very familiar with the pricing model. But I can understand it and be annoyed by it at the same time.

Imagine buying a $2000 laptop with a broken keyboard, integrated graphics, half terabyte SSD, two generations out of date CPU and 8GB of RAM in 2020. Even after a discount to $1700 it's still a super massive ripoff.
