Apple doubles down on 8GB Macs despite calls to increase the base spec ahead of M4 devices

Apple’s latest MacBook Air, packing the M3 chip, has been a resounding success. We awarded it five stars in our review, but there’s a significant drawback for buyers.

That’s the fact that despite the relatively low base price (for an Apple laptop, that is), the default configurations come with just 8GB of RAM. Increasing it to the 16GB offered by many competitors at the same price range will cost you an extra $200.
