    You re right. I am wrong.

    I am **** brought wrong choose Logic Board came with RAM 2GB inside Macbook Air so I cannot replacment RAM. RAM Stick are chiped on logic card that cannot be replacement

     

    Macbook Air is not same as Macbook .

     

    All I know Ram is very very very quick speed flow the memories than Storage Memory Flash 64GB.

    So I happy to accept to have GB 2 to be stay on Logic Board.

     

    For get Large Amount GB ram I must buy MAC Computer for home.

     

    I hate watch MAC VS PC. ***** and dumbs for does not know PC mean Personal Computer.

    On Mac OS X 10.6.7 showed me design is for Personal Computer.

    MAC are a PC!

      I completely agree and understand, although I knew I couldn't upgrade anything I was told that with all the solid state and flash memory it would not be required.  Worse than all that I was told there was no plan to put thunderbolt on the Air nor were the keys going to be backlit; guess what happened a mere 6 weeks later.  I am at the mercy of the Best Buy Manager as to if they will swap me out to the latest version.  I didn't buy the upgrade protection as I wasn't told it was to be upgraded as a laptop a few weeks later; I am a little ticked

    This is, howerver unfortunately, the inherent nature of any technology purchase.  People at an apple store don't know and certainly cannot comment on what new products may be coming down the pike -and certainly those at a bestbuy do not.  There are some ways to check if a product lifecycle indicates that a new model MAY be due, but that as well is never certain.  over on the macrumors forum you can find a listing of macs and when they were refreshed or newly released and it will give a bit of a semantic buy/wait/hold recommendation.  Apple has in the past made concessions for 30 days, but not more than that.  I doubt bb would do as such but you might just get lucky.

    I am not going to get a new thunderbolt Macbook Air.

     

    iMAC with thunderbolt is perfect. Because iMAC have good fan flow the heat so keep iMac cool.

    iMac is use for heavy load such video, large files.

     

    Right now I do not have iMAC, iPhone and iPad/ipod.

    I do have Macbook Air it does not have thunderbolt.

    I do not have any complains.

    I am going to buy a thunderbolt iMac for my home use.

     

    After that I am going to get a new iPhone 5. I do still have Curve Blackberry/w Google Sync App.

    So that help me to wait for get a iPhone LTE/NCF.

     

    Wise Budget.

    Get a Apple TV unless I get iPhone LTE/NCF.

     

    I know Apple Produces have good more time life.

     

     

    If people say "I am PC".

    I say to people PC is a machine.

     

    If people say "I am MAC"

    I say to people that is a machine.

    @dbs Well, I now feel properly chastised for failing to research a question that would never have occurred to most people, I truly believe. I've upgraded the RAM on many computers, including laptops. It's not exactly an exotic thing.

    Thanks for the snarky scolding.

     

    I'm sorry that you did not realize that MBA ram is not upgradeable, but how would you like that message delivered?

    If you can document what the manager told you then I would go back and argue for a new one, if it is your word versus his ..... try hard to be convincing.

     

    FYI Best Buy have no experts on anything on staff.

    I have a bulge in the middle too, but sadly my MBA does not

    At the risk of my first post getting me into trouble... [hi all, i've broswed the discussions for a long time and always found answers to any problems without needing to post - so thanks]

     

    Is this still true of the mid 2011 Macbook Air? (the non upgradeble RAM issue that is)

     

    Because... Apple online info for MBA says the following under the memory specs;

    " $999 model configurable to 4GB, only at the Apple Online Store."

     

    suggesting that at this point in time you can walk in to a macshop with the 2011 MBA 2GB model (having decided it's not quite FAT enough) and have it 'upgraded' to 4GB...?

    " $999 model configurable to 4GB, only at the Apple Online Store."

    It means just that... you can only get that option if you order it "online"... not in the store.  There are a number of configurations that the stores and retailers carry.  If you want options that are not standard, they are built to order.  The RAM is still soldered directly to the logic board and cannot be up upgraded after the machine has been manufactured.

    my dufus-ness

    funny how wishful thinking can make one mis-understand concepts and omit entire words form sentences... i my head I had read "...upgradeble to 4GB only at the Apple Store"

     

    Upgradeable = post

    configurable = pre

    simple concept really

     

    sorry to dig up a 'probably should be dead' post

  • JoeyR Level 6 Level 6 (8,275 points)

    LOL... it's easy to mis-read stuff sometimes...  When I first glanced at your comment (namely the "my dufus-ness") part, I thought you were posting in German or something... it didn't quite "click" at first.
