I’m here at an Apple store, and after getting an employee to enter the administrator password, I installed AutoCad for Mac. And in case anyone is wondering, it runs with only 2 GB of RAM. Here’s the proof:
It did take several beats to start up, but once running, it seemed quite usable. But keep in mind I spent less than 10 minutes with it. In the end, I decided to order the the base 11” Air with the $90 4 GB upgrade, since the RAM is hardwired to the logic-board. It turns out that the SSD storage is removable, and Toshiba will be selling it, so I’m going to keep with 64 GB of storage for now.
