    No, you cannot upgrade the ram, its hardwired onto the logic board and the moment no one is selling the SSD modules for the 2012 MBA

    The SSD has a new proprietary connector. No replacement is currently on the market as far as I know, although eventually there might be (don't count on them being anywhere as cheap as 2.5-inch SSDs though).

    RAM is soldered on, can't be exchanged or upgraded. If you want 8GB of RAM you have to order one with it.
