    hey guys, i got a macbook air rev a and im loving it, it seems more then fast enough for my needs, which are essentially just facebook and taking notes in class. however, it looks like it may be possible to sell the 80gb hdd inside for about $100(thats what they go for on ebay) and then upgrade to a 32gb ssd for about that much(I dont store anything on the laptop). Is this worth it? Which ssd's are good and reasonably priced? How will this compare performance wise to the new macbook airs?
    thanks!

    I have the same question but I think 32G is a bit on the small side, I am thinking of buying a 64G Renice SSD (you can search the thread about it). But I don't think it is a good idea to sell the 80G HD as if the SSD fails you won't have sth. for back up.
