    Long story short:

    I live in Canada, brother in the US. He's coming for a visit today and picked me up a 13" base from his local Apple store for me (nice guy).

    However, I would like the base 13" with 4GB of ram. Do I have any options to swap it out somewhere (in store/online)? I'm reading stores are getting all 4 base models + 2 "loaded" models of an 11 (1.6, 4GB, 128) and 13 (2.13, 4GB, 256).

    I'm not really interested in the faster processor nor additional capacity. Just want more ram.

    Unfortunately the machines aren't upgradable since the RAM is soldered on. Your brother may be able to exchange it in the US though cross-border would likely not be possible. There's the eBay option, of course.

    If it's unopened you should be able to do that. But if it's opened that would be a problem. Not sure about the U.S./Canada thing though.

    Oh I know the ram can't be upgraded, I'm just curious if the Apple store will carry the base model with 4 GB of ram. And if so, will they exchange it.

    Oh yeah, unopened, brand new. He knows that part of the appeal of buying an Apple product is the unboxing :)
