I get your post, after all, your opinion. However, 8GB and 256GB is enough for some.
Honestly, i got a 16GB and 256GB Mac mini and MacBook Air last year and I'm a developer.
That said, it's been no secret that the best models from Apple's prices are (99% of the time) the middle one. Though in this case I went with the maxed out model :)
