    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick post to say hello to everyone.

    I am getting a recon Air A1237 today (I am led to believe that this is a 2008 model) which has an 80GB hard drive and 2GB ram.

    So my main question is, is are either of these things upgradeable?

    Thanks in advance for your help/advice.

    You can upgrade the HD but the RAM is soldered to the motherboard and can't be upgraded.

    Thanks for the help mate. I already know that the battery is replaceable, so that will be the first thing that is getting replaced.

    I would not buy that old of a model - the 2010's are much, much improved.

    Thanks for the advice, but with the upmost respect to yourself I had a limited budget and got what I could afford.

    I have this C2D MBA and it runs Lion OK, but my recently purchased apple refurb 2011MBA - also with 2 GB ram runs Mavericks very well.

    If you can find a cheap-enough PATA SSD then this might be a worthwhile update, you won't get the speed of a modern SATA SSD but hopefully some of the reliability? A typical PATA is something like "64GB RunCore Pro IV 1.8" 5mm PATA ZIF Plus Solid State Disk"
