    Hi,
    of course I read, that the ram on the new MBA is soldered.

    But I couldn't find any information whether the ram is soldered in dual channel or single channel.
    I hope it is in dual channel mode.

    Yes, it's dual channel. It says so in System Preferences.

    Thank god. single channel would not have been a good decision.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question: why would single channel be a bad decision?

    Because single channel would limit the performance of the intel cpu.
    It is designed for dual channel use.
