So i posted about this last night and it appears my thread got deleted... Well... heres another try! I was just informed by a friend that apple uses both Toshiba (TS128E) and Samsung SSDs in the new 2012 MBAs. After he told me about this, I looked up my MBA specs and discovered my 13'' MBA was built with the Toshiba. He also informed me the Toshiba SSD is known to be a tad slower than the Samsung counterpart. I decided to use Blackmagic Speed Test app to see if my speed were on par with other benchmarks online. Here are my results: 226MB/s write 448MB/s read According to a benchmark on osxdaily: My MBA should be getting approx 360ish write and 450ish read http://osxdaily.com/2012/06/19/macbook-air-2012-ssd-benchmarks-vs-macbook-air-2011/ Whats everyone getting?
