It’s not long since Apple launched its latest MacBook Air with screen size of 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch, but the guys from iFixit has already brought out the dissected version of the netbook with photographs posted on their portal.
If you take a good look at the dissected machine then you will see that most of the spaces under the hood are filled up with batteries. The manufacturers used solid state storage which is as tiny as the size of RAM stick to save space, whereas, 2.5-inch or 1.8-inch hard drive are quite big in size are not used.
Very less chance of upgrading RAM which is 2GB standard because the stick is soldered to the motherboard. But nevertheless you can order one model with a 4GB RAM module onboard, but this will cost you an extra $100.
The good news is, that you can theoretically upgrade the storage space of the machine if you run out of memory space because you can tuck in or tuck out the SSD card easily. However, it wont be easy to find a replacement SSD as it uses a proprietary format.
