Hi,

Is 256 GB the maximum amount of flash memory that I can get in newest (mid 2011) Macbook Air?

I would really love an upgrade to 512 GB, is this physically possible? I know the memory is soldered to the motherboard, but can i get 512 GB memory directly from Apple?

Basically, is it possible?

Thanks

Yes.

Yes. Given enough money and soldering skills...

I know the memory is soldered to the motherboard, but can i get 512 GB memory directly from Apple?

No, not from Apple.

Basically, is it possible?

Anything is possible. This is just not very practical. :cool:

I believe the hard drive memory is not soldered on. I could be wrong though
