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.
