[Micronet] FYI re. RAM for the new MacBook Pro with retina display

Ian Crew
Hi all:

I just picked up an interesting tidbit regarding the RAM for the new MacBook Pro with retina display:  Apparently, like the MacBook Air, the RAM is soldered onto the logic board.  Sigh.  So, if you're ordering one, make sure you buy all the RAM you'll need from the get-go.  (For me, personally, I'd want to get the maximum 16GB given this information.)

Thanks to http://ifixit.org/2753/macbook-pro-with-retina-display-teardown/ for this....

Cheers,

Ian

I see this as yet another milestone along the path of the merger of OSX and iOS systems and hardware.

Retina displays, App Stores / app sandboxing, multitouch control, "sealed" hardware, fewer ports / more wireless, thin-thin-thin, data in the cloud...Like it or not, it sure is interesting!

Better watch out...all those retina displays are going to cause a global
network collapse:

Greg,

I agree, it seems to be the wave of the future. I admit that all I carry around is my iphone now with all of the various cloud computing options and even an app like Documents to Go allows me to be pretty much without the need for a laptop at all so in many ways I'm already there. Anything remotely lacking on my iphone can be accomplished on my desktop in my office and I'm hard pressed to think of what that would be at the moment.

Beth

And I sent a "WTF" email to Jonathan asking for an explanation because this seemed so bizarre!  

Didn't realize that a wall street journalist blogger would have the nerve to write up such tripe--and I fell for it!

- Marilyn

PS  Jonathan: ignore that email!

I knew we must be overdue for a "new technology x will cause the internet to melt" story. It's 1996 all over again, again.

1996 again?  So even if we survive the retina displays, Y2K is going to destroy
us all in a few years?
