Buying a New Mac? Get More RAM Now!

As reported by WIRED Magazine in their 2012 story “The New MacBook Pro: Unfixable, Unhackable, Untenable”, in order to create the increasingly lighter and thinner products today’s Mac users crave, today’s Macs are less upgradable than ever before.

In many current-model Macintosh computers, RAM is soldered directly onto the logic board with no provision for user replaceable/upgradable RAM in the future. Before finalizing a new purchase decision, be sure to find out if you can add more RAM later!
