    Just a quick question, not very tech minded so sorry if I sound a bit blonde:D

    My current laptop, a Vaio has a physical memory of 4GB and virtual memory 7.9GB.

    Which one of these is the RAM?

    I'm quite happy with the way it performs, so when I buy the MBA I'll settle for the model which has a similar memory be it 4GB or 8GB.

    The 4GB is ram.

    I don't know where you got the Virtual Memory from, this is something vendor selling you a laptop don't mention. It's not a specification you purchase a laptop by.

    The other important number is storage space, typically 64GB and beyond.
