    Be aware that you won't be able to have TRIM support with all of the 3rd party Blade SSD solutions. I know for a fact that the OWC SSDs do not support TRIM.

    Ahh, oops, I glanced quickly and saw the blue bar chart and thought it was the same Geekbench one from earlier.

    The plus side to this is that we have discovered that the chipset supports SATA III (6Gbit/sec) although the link speed of the SSD is SATA II (3Gbit/sec). This means you may be able to upgrade with a SATA III SSD at a later time to improve SSD speed performance substantially. Perhaps the SATA III Blade SSDs were not available at the current time, and Apple will start building the MBA with a faster SATA III SSD installed as they become available.

    Needs to be all-in one :( I have a 512GB SSD in my MBP 15" and it's great.
