What type of upgrades are currently possible regarding RAM and SSD

Anyone upgrade SSD or RAM yet on the newest MCA 13"?

I'd love to up the RAM to max to speed things up but unsure if there are kits out yet.


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Sorry no kits to add RAM out there. It’s not something a normal DIY’er would do as you really need some specialized equipment to it. You also are limited to what Apple designed (8 MB max)

You could replace the logic board with one that has the higher amount of RAM if you have only 4 GB and want 8 GB MacBook Air 13" (2017) 1.8 GHz Logic Board

As far as the SSD you can replace it with a larger one. Look at BeetsTech (Apple’s custom SSD’s) or OWC or Transcend
