Thanks.As Apple's web site states, it is not. Order the machine with the RAM size you want, either 2 gb or 4 gb.
I believe Office for Mac comes with a flyer in the package with details on how to download it specifically because the MBA doesn't have an optical drive. If I remember correctly, it says this on the retail box.Thanks.
And regarding the optical drive....
Only thing I MAY need it for is Microsoft office... (school for her) is it downloadable, or I need a DVD rom, are there less expensive options than the apple SuperDrive?
