Another reason why I've never bought any product from Apple:
I wasn't surprised to hear that the SSD is non-modular. That's Apple being Apple. What did shock me was the sheer amount of writes on the drive. What the hell is the operating system doing? The SSD is going to be toast way too soon and then the customer will be forced to buy a whole new laptop.
Also, 8GB of RAM in 2021? Utterly mediocre.
