Wait, is the RAM in a 2010 13" MBA upgradeable or not?

    I just got the base 2010 MBA and am a little confused. I thought the RAM was not upgradeable, but when I re-read the specs at both the Apple Refurb site as well as Best Buy's site, it says a max of 4GB for this model. How is that possible? Do you have to take it to an Apple Store and have a Genius do it?

    Memory 2GB of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM onboard (4GB maximum)

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Apple&#...bolsp-app06-45?id=1218200061236&skuId=9944942
    2GB DDR3 SDRAM
    For multitasking power, expandable to 4GB.

    you can buy it with either 2GB or 4GB, it is not expandable.

    That's exactly what I thought as well. If so, why do both sites list this specific model with those details?

    Who knows. Who cares. The memory is soldered in, it can't be upgraded.
