    Hi everyone !
    If I buy a macbook Pro 15 (non retina) with 4 GO ram , can I change it later ? It's only on the retina that we can't ?
    Thank you .

    All Retina MacBook Pros have their ram soldered onto the logic board. What you buy is what you get, no upgrading later.

    Non retina models, i.e., older discontinued MBPs can have their ram upgraded.

    Yes, only the Retina models have it soldered in.

    Can you help me again . What would you choose between a macbook Pro 15 non retina (2012) and a Dell xps 15 non 4k. For the games which is the best ? I know I'm in an apple forum but tell me really ^^.

    You really should learn to read specification sheets. 2 minutes of googling which graphics card is in each laptop would tell you all you need to know.
