Thanks to the power of Swift you don't even need all that large a code base to gain an appreciation for more computing power.
It's not bad but I'm not sure it's a clear win either when a DeskMini X300 with Athlon 200GE and 8GB RAM is ~$100 more.

This'd be great for me if the RAM weren't soldered. I don't think there's anything similar to this with upgradable RAM though.

Anyone know if you can pop 64GB in this? (One comment on Amazon says you can't, another one says you can.)

Software development. One of the servers I work on has to keep user's data in memory to meet performance requirements.

No L14 by the look of it. Anyone know of a good deal on something that'll take two 32GB SODIMMs?

This'd work great for me if it had two SODIMM slots. Anyone got any recommendations?

Both Parallels and VMware Fusion only offer same-architecture virtual machines (Intel on Intel, ARM on ARM).
