I was looking at the specs for the new Macbook air, and I can't find any reasons why they are distributing them in 2gb and 4gb RAM configurations only. The RAM is soldered in and the Apple Store is not offering more than 4gb RAM
Wouldn't that limit the performance of the system, since they are using Core i5 and Core i7 processors?
From what I understand triple channel RAM works best in a pair of 3 (3, 6, 12, 24gb RAM), so lets assume cost factor is a null factor
why would apple sell these optimal machines with only 2gb or 4gb RAM? When I say optimal I am referring to the low power high performance CPU, coupled with the SSD and the thunderbolt ports (ignoring the GPU here)
this would literally be the perfect machine - as far as bottlenecks are concerned, so I dont understand why this part was neglected, can someone shed more insight into this because maybe I am missing something obvious
