Not true. There is always someone willing to pay a premium price for what they THINK they need, so Apple provides it. No conspiracy, just good business.Apple would no longer offer RAM as a separate option since it would be irrelevant.
There is a way to create an alias where the backup goes to point to an external drive. You can search for it online, I don't remember where I saw it. It took a Terminal command to make the alias. When you make the backup, it goes to the alias, which points to the external. Done.
