    Hi Guys,

    I have 2 questions about my new macbook air. I need new screws for bottom case (10 pieces) and i couldn't find it anywhere. Any suggestions? and also can i use 13" screws on 11" version?

    And does anybody sell original 2012 ssd drive 64gb version?

    Thank You

    The screws are 4 dollars with free shipping, http://www.ebay.com/itm/110982608456?redirect=mobile

    As for the 64GB SSD I highly recommend you put money towards a higher capacity, a lot of members have trouble with that small of a drive. A larger SSD will also improve resale value, but since you asked. http://www.ebay.com/itm/64GB-SSD-Toshiba-Hard-Drive-Apple-MacBook-Air-11-A1370-655-1633A-THNSNC064GMDJ-/281067268265?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4170ea28a9

    Thank you for your fast respond. However, your links seems to be for older macbook airs. I know new MacBook Air has new SSD drive which are not compatible with older models. For this reason that SSD doesn't useful for my machine i think. Correct me if i am wrong please. But i am not sure about screws. Do you think they will fit new macbook airs?

    Sorry, when I was searching for some reason I had 2011 in my head not 2012. I feel bad for that mistake. Here you go. By the way the screws will be fine.
