    Ok, recently I notice my 2gb 11.6" is slowing down when I use Facetime and surfing the web at the same time, it lags and delay the web browser.. anybody experiencing this beside me?

    Use Activity Monitor to check how much RAM your computer is using. With FaceTime there'll be video decoding and with the Web there'll be scripts and stuff that eat your RAM. Perhaps the computer is using virtual memory off the SSD and slowing down your computer?

    There are reason why people recommend the 4GB RAM option and this is probably one of them ;)
