Are we going to see a similar Samsung vs. Toshiba vs. LG debacle again?

    Title says it all. You remember what happened in 2011. People (who cared) were returning their MBAs in hopes of getting ones with both a Samsung SSD and screen.

    Are both 256 and 512 gig SSDs being upgraded to the faster ones? Who's making the screens this time?

    Sure looks like it's just gonna be Samsung this time around.

    Yeah I went through that debacle last year returning my lg mba for a samsung one. Don't want to go through that this year so my mba is staying put.

    Yes, this was discussed widely last year with the 2011s. I'm guessing it'll be the same this year:

    Also, I just found this article:

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/6003/the-new-macbook-air-uses-toshibas-sata-6gbs-ssds

    In any case, it's sounding like either option will be incredibly fast this time around.

    No


    The difference in speed isn't as pronounced this year.
