Potential Apple customer here. Is the RAM Upgradeable on MacBook Air & MacBook Pro notebooks?

Thanks in advance!

It is only upgradable on the non-retina Macbook Pros.

Soldered to the logic board, for your convenience

Air: purchase what you plan to use.

Pro: should still be upgradable. But the retina is not.

My advice, max out the ram when you order it if you get a MBA or rMBP.

The regular MBPs just get the base 4GB as you can slap in cheap RAM from Newegg for a fraction of the cost of what Apple charges you.

I wish the Air would come with 16gb. I use a VM for Win7 because I use Access and Project for work at times and while 8gb has served me well I watch the Activity Monitor and it gets up to 7gb at times since the VM uses 4gb regardless of whether it needs it or not.
