My mom is looking at Macbooks on Amazon!

I keep seeing ”8GB RAM, 256GB SSD” this just loses me… when i look at the GB on my ipad and HP which has 465GB. But is that in Ram or SSD?
(sorry about the font, i dont know how that happened i only copied and pasted from the Amazon page., i didnt think it would copy & paste the font too)
(I REALLY wish she would wait until we move but… OH YES! 😡😡 I forgot, she doesn’t want to…😩😩😩😪)

You can use CTRL+SHIFT+V to paste in an unformatted text. not sure how to do an unformatted paste on an apple product, yet.

GB is measured in both memory and storage. Once you hit 1,000GB then that is referred as 1TB.

RAM is the memory, SSD would be the storage, so that MacBook is going to have 256GB of storage space. That's either a low entry MacBook, or an MacBook Air.
