Is it possible to upgrade an old MBA with an SSD and if so, what brand?

I have one of these in my 2009 Air, and it honestly turned my Air into a whole different computer. The difference between it with the SSD and the old HDD is night and day.

Same here! Go with OWC and your old MBA becomes a totally new and significantly snappier machine that has a backlight keyboard.

Intel SSDs seem to get much better reliability scores/feedback than the OWC, I wasn't sure which to go for in my Mini, but in the end I went Intel for this reason.

I'm sure either are fine, but the experts reckon on Intel.

Id probably say OCZ Vertex II upgraded from my iMac, they are currently doing a promotion also. I think SSD will def work way faster on your mba.
