    My first Mac was the new Airs that were released back in July. I ended up returning my 11-inch ultimate, but I just bought a different configuration at the Apple store today. i5 processor this time, with a 180GB OWC SSD on the way.

    As far as using a Mac goes, I haven't even scratched the surface yet, but it feels great using it. Can't wait until I have everything set up and get familiar with it.

    100 points question?

    Why would any1 buy a 330$ 180GB SSD for a new MBA?

    You got 64GB version? Exchange / sell it and take the 128GB or even 256GB.

    Oh yeah !

    If u got Samsung SSD in ur MBA, there really is no big difference.

    OWC drive still isn't SATA III - so yeah, marketing works I guess.

    They didn't have 4/64 at the store, so I had to pay the extra for the 128. But yes, for about the same price as the OWC I could have upgraded to the 256 from Apple, but the 180GB will provide me with enough storage and I get a speed boost.

    Works for me.
