This is only step one - but the future looks promising, for sure.
Absolutely, what I meant was they need to clarify it over time. It's clearly very early days. Will be very interesting to find out how the RAM thing works and how it will change perceptions of how much is "needed".
But one thing that's been the case is the huge extra cost Apple have charged for anything other than the default amount of memory and storage space. Will be interesting to see if the new generation 27" iMac will be as simple for user upgrade of RAM as the current one is. This time next year maybe we'll have a better idea.
