    Don't worry, if you don't get the combination you want, take it into apple and tell them the component configuration you want. i had to do this 10 times before i got lucky number 11

    I assume he/she was being sarcastic, if not they really have some patience. Congrats though.

    I must have been lucky then :)

    I have a Panasonic Space Plasmatic LCD panel and a Vertex 3 Server Edt. SSD in my MBA 13.

    It's great to be lucky for once ;)

    You have to lend your wife/girlfriend to the sales assistant before you get a Samsung SSD & screen.

    OR if you previously visited the genius bar with a phone, laptop or computer for repair, if they found naked images on your hdd you get VIP status allowing you to get the combo. Mr X. a trusted and reliable source explained that all apple profits come from selling amateur photos to the adult sites.

    Strangely I find the Samsung display in the 2011 11.6" MBA seems to have a better black colour and shade which gives me the impression it looks better the the LG.

    I checked things out in the Apple Store after reading the forum. In the store that I went to, there were two 11.6" MBA i5 side by side. One is LG and the other is Samsung. I played with different desktop pictures and come with the impression.

    On the other hand, it just happened the two 11.6" MBA have 1 Samsung SSD and 1 Toshiba SSD. Samsung SSD seems to be slightly quicker. The difference varies with tasks. Tried opening a Safari, iTune, download a file from the Internet.

    Interesting, you want the 'inferior' SSD and 'inferior' display?
    If this is a combo you want, try the refurb section :> Lots of people are returning that which you most want. I'd say that the likelihood is actually high that you can get what you want.

    Might actually be a good point if you actually care that much about which you get. However, they might not be around for a while. All these returns might make for a ton of open box LG/Toshiba models.
