I know this somewhat overlaps with another thread, but I'd like to have a master list of DiskSpeedTest results of various drives connected to the new 2012 MacBook Air machines. Please add your own results and I'll add them to this top post.

I also threw in a few others from my testing just for comparison purposes.

Very interesting, But for those testing with ssd's it would be nice to know what external 3.0 enclosure is being used.

Good point, thanks. I added a note to the tests that I did using the same connector and cable from my Seagate drive.
