At first I was disappointed about the soldered-in RAM, but though it benefits Apple to keep any money spent on RAM upgrades, as a long time Mac fixer I suspect this may reduce memory failure. The tech for RAM slots is fragile / failure prone. Maybe soldered-in RAM is more reliable?
It's also nice to "set it and forget it;" just get as much or more RAM than you think you'll need and get on with using the machine. With today's SSD storage, the axiom that "you can never have too much RAM" doesn't hold as true - much faster page swaps between the memory and storage means one can run more or hungrier programs w/o noticeable bogging.
Think you didn't get enough RAM? Get or install the SSD card and make it your boot drive - you'll get a lot of bang for your buck! The ability to upgrade storage keeps this a viable platform for as long as needed.
BTW, I appreciated the Gertrude Stein quote. Thanks for bringing a bit of the literary arts world to the tech world - we need all the culture we can get. ;-)
