Just upgraded to 16 GB RAM and 256 GB storage and it's now 'only' about $1500 with tax included.

Didn't buy because this is still too much for what it is. Storage and RAM don't cost that much!
Adorama was selling a 13.6 inch M2 MacBook Air 16/256 for $999 ('') (sale eneded last night). Of course, MR didn't post about it because no affiliate commission.

Warning: All 8GB BS.
If 8GB is like 16GB maybe 256GB is like 512GB SSD.

Guess that $250 can go to a good external drive or iCloud storage subscription, since this device has so little storage space for such an expensive laptop. :p

I don't see how anyone who needs an M2 laptop performance will be ok with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD, in 2023-2024.
Clearly I am not Apple's target audience as even if I had more than 10 euros in my account I wouldn't buy one at these prices, but this is ridiculous. If they keep the BS upgrade prices as is, at least bring the tiers one level up, or down, whatever is the proper one. Keep the BS upgrade prices and starting prices as is, but have the base models with 512GB of SSD and 16GB of RAM. Else it's an insult.
I can answer your question. I did not buy my base M2 MBA solely for M2 processor performance. Last year, I was in the market for a laptop, and the M2 was the current MBA model. Yes, the M2 has better performance than my intel MBA predecessor, but that was not the primary motivation for me. I was more interested in: better battery life, fanless operation, 1080p camera, mag safe, Touch ID, etc.. The better CPU performance was just a bonus.
