I think Apple knows there are very, very few people for whom 16GB RAM would make a difference, let alone purchase that model. The limitation seems to be what's available in store though, since it's available on the website or by phoning in to buy.

Is there a chip shortage on the 2.6??
The uneveness makes no sense.
Word was that the displays were showing very low yield but you would think apple would put them in the higher value models...
AutoCAD starts out with using a tad under 300MB at the beginning of a work day and 8 hours later that figure has ballooned to 1.3GB. I more blame AutoDesk for still not getting their crap together with their bloated software. Add in engineering tools running in Windows through Parallels and other work related apps and I easily use my entire 8GB of RAM. When I get a 16GB capable system, you bet I will be upgrade it to the maximum 16GB.

Are you backed up??? If so, why? Psyllium Fibre is not free but will do wonders!
I went with the 16 gig model for that very reason that it cannot be upgraded down the road. 16 gigs of ram will be enough for the life of this computer. When its not enough, it will be time for an upgrade anyways.
I am a real big fan of the flash architecture, things are incredibly snappy and responsive.

The gigabit Ethernet dongle was in the box with the computer although the power adapter (Magsafe to magsafe 2) came in a separate shipment.
