    My new macbook air 13" base has an lg screen and a toshiba ssd. I've turned on the gas in the oven and will stick my head in. Theres no reason to live. But seriously folks my screen is, to use a cliche, picture perfect and the ssd is SO fast i cant even count a second ir two before something boots up. While on paper this whole you need samsung etc etc may be true in reality i think its another fanboy ocd issue and should just go away. I feel sorry for those who are so unnerved by this NON-issue.

    One thing you need to realize is that whatever is going on here is not indicative of what is happening world-wide. It is not to say that issues aren't occurring, but if you let yourself decide there is a "wide spread" issue based only on these forums then you will certainly drive yourself insane.

    You're just over-reacting... It's all fine, but if you really hate it that much, why not just give it away for free? Seriously people, you have to stop with this LG vs Samsung vs Toshiba crap...

    EDIT: I actually stopped reading your post after the first phrase cause it already pissed me off... Afterward you seemingly were just being ironic and wrote a quite stupid intro. Stop posting in such manner... it's crap...

    When the Alu Mac Books came out there was an absolute difference in quality of screens between LG and Samsung I think it was. However, I think we're really getting too involved in these things making it difficult to enjoy the computers. I get that the price people pay is a premium and they expect quality; no one is saying not to, but I think that people are putting too much stake in something that may not be a real big issue.

    I can't comment on the first part though ( the quality difference when the Alu Mac Books came out - had never bothered comparing 2 side by side ) but I totally agree with the second part.

    We get this all the time with BMW - "my M3 idles 50 rpm faster then my friends identical car" - it's inevitable when discussing hobby items....fun to read OCD sometimes, other times maddening....

    I had whichever was 'better' on my 2011 MBA 13" and did not care at all. Didn't even look on my 2012 11" MBA. It doesn't matter. People need to realize it's an Apple product and the whole point is to just get it and use it and quit being concerned with these details or 2% speed differences or subjective-maybe-better-worse-color issues. If you're getting an Apple product with that in mind, you should just stop while you're ahead and buy elsewhere. I hear Alienware makes some really fast super cool computers!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To OP just ignore it, 'good' or 'bad' and enjoy your wonderful MBA.

    I like how half of the respondents didn't even read the first post.

    Well said, I don't even know what screen I have and it'll stay that way.

    It made me laugh and it was a damn good post, which ridiculed the crazy mass hysteria in a fun and harmless way. Who are you to tell people how they should post? Is humour still not allowed in Switzerland?

    Well depending on which MacBook Air you have… if it's latest model the Toshiba SSD uses a SF-2281 controller whereas the Samsung uses their own 830 controller. Both are comparable in performance.

    As you've pointed out, they are different on paper, but from day-to-day users cannot really tell the difference without looking at benchmarks.

    I've got the Samsung screen and ssd and you don't know what you are missing. I still might return my 13" MBA though. It has a 1.3 micron ding on the outer rim on the case and of course that completely ruins the whole experience for me. I'd post more but I've got to go pick up my medications.;)

    It could have two hampsters hopped up on methamphetamine for all I care. My 2012 11" MBA is fast.

    Why can't people be bothered to read the entire post before responding?! It's not as if the original poster wrote an essay or anything!

    Read... think... respond.
