I hope no one minds if I consolidate data in a poll. I'm sure I can't be the only one a bit concerned to see the sudden appearance of so many complaints about 2012 MBA SSD failures on our forum. I know that forums are a place where people complain about problems and I'm sure that most people have no issues (so please don't post this 100 times thanks!) I think it would still be helpful to those trying to get out-of-warranty repair to know how many forum members are affected by this issue and if it is only the Toshiba drives or also the Samsung drives that are affected. I ask because I am trying to gift my old 2012 MBA to my sister and the cost of Applecare for her will be prohibitively expensive but if the issue is dire enough I'll insist on it anyway. Thanks in advance for your help!
