    It appears to be the right size...not sure on connection/drivers/etc. How much can you get it for? Considering you'd potentially be voiding your warranty for 8GB of storage over the 64GB, I'm assuming it must be way cheaper than the $1k Apple wants.

    I'm having a really hard time finding out what model SSD the MBA uses. I'm wondering if it might actually be the SanDisk UATA, which maxes out at 64GB. I'd just be a bit surprised if they passed up the 72GB if it was an option, unless it was a lot more expensive. It just seems like the closer they get to offering an 80GB HDD or and ~80GB SDD, the easier it is for people to compare it and now have to weigh the loss of storage space, and therefore more readily pay to upgrade.

    Actually, i believe its the Samsung SSD Pata: IDE

    :apple:

    Especially since the HDD should be easily swapped out, which is also a PATA

    That's entirely possible and would explain the 64GB since that seems to be Samsung's max. Didn't the SanDisk not have PATA though? Or are they actually using the SATA connection?

    Just SATA :mad:

    but I was looking around and Samsung are mass producing 128GB SSDs in the first quarter of the year.
