When is 8 bet­ter than 256?

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

Q Which is bet­ter to have in a MacBook Air – 128GB stor­age and 8GB RAM, or 256GB and the stan­dard 4GB RAM? An­drew Todd

A Re­gard­less of whether you are buy­ing the 11-inch or 13-inch model, if you can only af­ford one, go for the ex­tra RAM. Dou­bling the RAM is cheaper than dou­bling the stor­age, and 8GB makes all ap­pli­ca­tions feel more re­spon­sive. Nei­ther the RAM nor the in­ter­nal stor­age can be up­graded on the Air af­ter you have bought it, but 128GB is still plenty and it’s quite straight­for­ward to con­nect an ex­ter­nal hard disk.

MacBook Airs can’t be up­graded for RAM and stor­age af­ter you’ve bought them.
