Hello,

I've just bought a refurbished MacBook Air 11.6''
1.4Ghz
2GB RAM
64 GB Flash
(model end 2010).

I thought that the RAM was upgradable but it is not.

My use is mainly professional, I use :
- IBM Lotus Notes 8.5
- MS Office
- Safari

Do you think that the use of these applications will be compatible with the 2GB RAM or should I cancel my order ?

Thanks for your advice,

Regards,
QUOTE Thanks

Safari will run fine - it comes with the OS so you know it will work. It does, however, leak memory (keep eating it up) so if you notice the machine slowing down and you haven't quit Safari in a while, restart Safari.

The Office 2011 system requirements state that you need 1GB of RAM as do the Lotus Notes system requirements.
