    1. Who buys a $1000 laptop with 4GB of ram? The base model really should be 8GB

    2. Even thinner? Why? Would have been better with a bigger battery for that optional 4K display.

        Looks lovely, but I'm also surprised by the 4GB RAM - even phones have this these days and the 1+5t has 6GB for less

            Apple consumers will, but Dell isn't Apple.

            Same. They're working hard on keeping endurance total shit.
            With just a cm more (around 1/4 of an inch) the damn battery would have lasted days.

              All Apple laptops have at least 8GB of RAM including MBA. If you want to be a good hater, you should target more accurately

                1 Why bother? Even if it had 8 GB, people like you would still complain.

                  My previous one from 2012 did not. It only had 4GB. https://support.apple.com/kb/sp649?locale=en_US

                    The Mac Mini still has 4 GB of RAM. But you're right about their laptops: they all have 8GB now.
