My MacBook Air (11-inch, Mid 2011), Processor  1.6 GHz Intel Core i5, Memory  4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3. So I want to upgrade memory to 8GB. Is it OK? Because I want to upgrade to Mountain Lion OS. That's why I need to know. Thanks.


MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    The RAM on the MacBook Air isn't upgradable after purchase.

    The only way to upgrade your memory is to sell your current MacBook Air and buy one with 8GB of memory, as memory is not user upgradeable.

    How's about Flash Storage? Can I upgrade?

    I put a 256GB SSD into my son's MBA and the benchmark tests show it to be about 30% faster than the original 128GB Drive. OWC is where I ordered it and it came with the tools to open the bottom of the MBA. The drive is held in with 1 screw and the SSD is right in the middle on top of the rest of the components. Easy to do. The new drive came with an enclosure to house the original drive in an elegant USB enclosure. With SSDs the PageOuts experienced by not having enough RAM are less of an issue because the drive is faster and has no moving parts compared to HDDs.
