    Macbook Air 120GB 4200rpm-HD A$2399

    Macbook Air 128GB SSD HD A$2798 (approximately a A$400 increase)

    13" 2.26GHz Macbook "Pro" 160GB 5400rpm-HD A$1899
    128GB SSD + A$640

    13" 2.53GHz Macbook "Pro" 250GB 5400rpm-HD A$2399
    128GB SSD +A$560

    15" 2.8GHz Macbook Pro 500 5400rpm-HD
    128GB SSD +A$320

    Gotta "love" the fluctuating SSD pricing based solely on machine price. Dodgy!

    macbook air uses 1.8" drives while macbook pros use 2.5" drives, the SSDs are physically different and probably costs more for the smaller version.

    All those prices are upgrade prices, and the base HDDs on each of those models are different, accounting for the different upgrade prices. If it cost the same to upgrade a 250GB HDD to an SSD as it did for a 500GB SSD, that would mean the base HDD prices are out of whack. All Apple is doing is factoring in the base hard drive prices.
