If you're referring specifically to the macbook air, it's probably because they wanted to make it thin and cheap (by mac standards), so performance has to take a backseat. But that being said, I think you can get by with less on a mac because mac os is better at managing memory and preventing memory conflicts than windows. I wouldn't by a mac air, it occupies a weird spot on the marketplace being less covenient than and iPad and less powerful than a basic macbook (I think)
