The title says it all. My father rather foolishly thought he'd get a Macbook Air when they first appeared... to use as his main machine. It's a rev A 1.6, 80GB HDD. It's not awful, apart from when he torrents* on it, and I got him a USB stick to store incoming files on so his HDD might still be usable. He still complains about its overall slowness though, esp compared to my mum's 15" MBP. (well duh) It's his birthday soon and mum wants to get him a rev B, but I was thinking of just getting him a SSD upgrade and spending the change on a mac mini for his torrenting needs*. So what're my options? As best I can tell it can only accept 5mm tall PATA SSDs and uses a ZIF connector. The bay may have a little more clearance, but not the 8mm required for the only 128GB PATA/ZIF SSD I've been able to find. (64GB is out of the question, he can only barely fit his life into 80GB) Does anyone know of a 128GB option I've missed? Also: a thread in this forum mentions that the rev A's logic board features a SATA bridge that appears to be active and recognised by the system, even if there's no apparent interface to it. Did anybody ever attach a drive to it? My Dad's warranty is good and up by now and I'm a capable solderer, so that's something I'd be willing to explore. Even if I did manage that, how hard is it to get ahold of a 128GB SATA/LIF SSD? I gather the connector in the MBA is non-standard, even for 1.8" drives? Sorry if I'm re-treading old ground; I've been flicking through this forum all afternoon from work and while it's been a lot of help these questions remain unanswered. * Yes, despite being able to afford a MBA my father still insists on torrenting movies. He's just impatient, really. Fully willing to watch appalling handycam uploads if it means he gets to see a film before anyone else. It's stupid, but it's his use-case so there's no use fighting it.
