    By the way, I heard that it's not easy to install virtual machine into 4 g memory, What is virtual machine? !Is this means dual system?

    You can't change de hard disk for a macbook air since it is and ssd soldered to the board.

    A virtual machine is like a guest OS installed within your normal OS. And yes, 4 Gbs is not enough to run say windows (as a virtual machine) smoothly

    Nope, it's held in by a screw. They're proprietary drives though.

    OWC offers replacement SSDs for all 11" Airs, or you can buy a larger stock SSD on ebay (eg, if you have a 64GB, you can put a 128 or 256GB that someone else pulled from their MBA).
