    Hey everyone, just picked up a second hand MBA for a song, but it could do with a few improvements.

    Just wondering if anyone has a good cheap lead on any sources for an SSD and a battery as I have to get them replaced...

    OWC for the SSD, no leads on a battery, but try them too!

    Yes I was wondering that. A lot of cheap ones from China.

    I'll take a look around, I'm from Canada so I'm looking at $139 plus taxes which will get me around $160. I only paid $520 for the unit!

    A song? $520.

    The battery holds an okay charge, but that's it. The thing works great, just looking to get faster storage and perhaps some extended battery time.
