I suppose that due to the various shortages of components it makes no economic sense to reduce prices on electronic devices these days.Disappointing prices of MacBook Air M1 and M2 models... M1 one (no 8-core GPU anymore) remains the same price, yet M2 ones are more expensive.
I'm really happy with my 8 core GPU M1 air, its the sweet spot for me. I wonder who will 1st with a bench of the M2 Air using heat transfer pads on the passive cooler.I suppose that due to the various shortages of components it makes no economic sense to reduce prices on electronic devices these days.
Let me try to put a positive spin on it. Those of us who already have a M1-family Mac should hold on it until at least the M3 or M4 generation anyway. For those who consider jumping in to Apple Silicon, the base price (M1 Air) is still the same and with a budget somewhat above the bare minimum there are now new, more powerful options. (I.e. better get a M2 Air than an 8-core GPU M1 Air.)
