Odd choices for that use.

Those ultrabooks trade off speed for style so for now I'm going with why do this if performance is a concern? As to RAM you would have to do what we did in the past and benchmark YOUR use to see if 2G more ram matters. But it's cheaper than ever as I added 2GB to my 6GB for about 22 bucks. I did not fret or test it, I did it.

I do not agree with u b/c ultra book is more effecient in speed and style
than laptop because it use ssd nit hdd
and for 64 bit system it can use up to millions of giggbyte of ram not only 4giga
