I got the base model with 4 gigs of ram but I'm curious as to how much it would cost me down the road to upgrade it to 8...I kind of fear the answer as I assume it's far more than the $100 extra it costs to order it off the bat with it.

Impossible. It's soldered on.

Yeah I googled and saw that...well, I plan on upgrading again next year when they get retina displays :) so I can live with 4 gigs.

it's very expensive indeed, you sell the current one with 4gb of ram, and you buy the new macbook air from the apple store that has the 8gb of rams. :cool:
