The SSD speed is on the 256 GB M2 MBP is slow - half the speed of the M1 MBP according to MacRumors

The reason is Apple switched to a 1 chip SSD on the M2 MBP. The M1 MBP used a 2 chip SSD wired in parallel.

If you want a fast M2 MBP, it would be wise to upgrade to the 2 chip 512 GB SSD for $200

True, but I think for the average user that is just using it for email/web/office tasks, the "slow" SSD is probably plenty fast! The "slow" SSD is still as fast/faster than what we had in 2015, and even those machines are generally still fine for email/web/office.
