    I'm about to buy a 13" baseline, and from what I heard, the Samsung screen and SSD are superior to the toshiba and LG options. How can I find out before I buy what it has?

    The Samsung SSD is best. There's no discernible difference between the Samsung and LG screens, though: that's a rumour.

    It's fact that the SSD's are different in speed though.

    I think the question was how can he tell which MBA has which components before he buys.

    Presumably the serial numbers could hold a clue, but I am pretty sure Apple is not going to be releasing that information if it exists... :cool:

    Nobody has found a pattern yet or a difference in day to day speed regarding the ssd.

    They bench faster but people who have both can't tell a difference.

    I tried to start a thread measuring boot time, I was 14 seconds with a toshiba ssd but nobody else really bothered.
