I'd say that's the minimum configuration for any decent new laptop these days. And with that, the Normal model is more expensive and you still don't have a Retina screen or the new form factor.
btw, SSD is upgradeable, just like with the Airs. It just needs a bit of time because they changed the interface, probably because of SATA 3. Only the RAM is soldered.
Gotcha. What if I wanted to upgrade the RAM to 16GB 1 or 2 years down the road? Kinda stinks that you are stuck with 8GB ya know? I guess when I get an expensive machine, I keep it for at least 3-4 years.
