    title says it all. Can't seem to find an upgrade option at the apple store site.

    Nope, 4GB is your only option.

    The new MBAs have the memory soldered to the logic board, the only possible upgrades are from 2gb to 4gb at the factory, not aftermarket.

    The 13" doesn't have a 2GB option.

    I am so there when the 8GB option inevitably comes out. Hope it's the next revision.

    Or when they release something better than 1333MHz memory and go with higher frequency for Intel Systems...and have 8GB models to :D

    I like mine though C2D 4 GB 256SSD

    Works runs everything swells..other then video production which is not a problem because ill just simply use ilife for that if need be
    but aperture and lightroom after effects run swell on this machine :D

    The only thing holding me back from the MBA is the ram situation and now I am considering the 13" MBP, but if I decide for that I will hold out for the upcoming refresh. I just hope Apple decides to upgrade the MBP to the same resolution as the MBA. I hate that both machines in their current states have such a big compromise.
