2011 Base 11in model good enough?

Hey All,

I just bought an 11in MBA 2011 which has 2 gigs RAM cause it was pretty cheap online brand new. All I'm really going to use it for is minimal web browsing (prefer to use my iPhone), emails, and recording acoustic songs on Garageband. 2 gigs ram should be good for this right? The last computer I had was a 2007 white macbook with less than 1gig ram I believe and it seemed to handle pretty well.

Best,

Kevin

It should work just fine for those uses.

Yup

more ram is always better, but if it's just for email and web browsing I don't see why not.
If the garageband part is very very very important to you, maybe 4gb ram would be best.
