I have a late 2010 Macbook Air 11". Kept in excellent condition and used with care. Just 66 days after warranty expired (of course!) the ssd died. What's worse is the poor way in which the system handles this. I get white screen of death (WSOD) and chime on boot since the stupid system gets stuck only looking for HD to boot from instead of timing out and looking for the USB stick or external drive. You have to open the computer (again with Apples annoying pentalobe security screws), unhook the HD and THEN boot using the usb key. Once it boots you can go to preferences and set the startup target as usb volume. After this you can reconnect the drive. After all this annoyance I could confirm that the drive (1.2 year old device with no F$#@$ing moving parts) was dead. The cost for replacement?? $601.15!!!!!!!! This is completely unacceptable. Of course I am going to buy a pentalobe screwdriver from ifixit and a 180GB (larger and faster than the apple one) from OWC and fix it myself for half the price. I think the drives in apple products should be 5 year warranty and this is unacceptable for them not to offer a free replacement.
