    Macbook Air's hard drive but I am kind of confused.I really don't need the memory so I wanted to find a 64gb ssd replacement.But I see everyone referring to the hard drive that comes with the Air as an ssd on the web.Does the air actually have an ssd or is a flash storage?Also,can someone direct me to the best place to purchase one?

    Which Macbook Air do you have? It's very important you know which model you have because the internal storage method changed between the pre-2010 and post-2010 models.

    SSDs are flash based you know?
    But yes the MBA's have SSDs integrated.

    we need more info but most of the Airs have the SSD integrated into the Motherboard so it cannot be upgraded

    2011 airs SSD can be changed, I think.

    Both the 2010 and 2011 MBAs have SSDs that can be replaced. It's the memory that cannot be upgraded after purchase.

    False. The current airs have a modular blade SSD. You can upgrade them--but you need have specific ones. OWC makes blade SSD you can upgrade with.

    Actually it is not false because I worded it with *most airs* not all Airs the ones before 2010 could not be upgraded and this includes most airs so you cannot say I am completely wrong so don't false me :)

    Agreed. When it had the 80 GB HDD, you could replace that.

    If you have a 2011 model, it has at least a 64GB SSD... Are you sure that's the right model? :confused:
