    Hey,

    As the title suggests really. Also, are there any differences between the 128gb and 256gb models, or the Samsung and Toshiba models?

    Thanks in advance.

    The ssd;s used are sata 2. The laptop itself is sata 3 capable, so when suitable sata 3 blade ssd's come around, you will be able to upgrade to that

    So far as the 2011 machines are concerned, they are SATA III. Modern Airs use much faster PCIe flash storage. Realize that this thread is from 2011.

    You absolutely can.

    Yes SATA III 6 GB. Yes you can upgrade the SSD. Best one is Transcend JetDrive.
