    Hate to post a new thread about this, but I can't seem to find if there is an upgrade from the 80 gig 4600 RPM drive to either solid state like new Air or if the 250 gig Toshiba posted in another forum works/is worth it.

    Anyone know? or have experience with this?

    Thanks

    Rev A = PATA, Rev B = SATA. Only choice would be to swap the 80G HD for a 64G SSD.

    some people on here have attempted to replace their Rev. A's with aftermarket SSD drives with mixed success... mostly lots of problems and cliff hangers not yet resolved (like with the runcore drives)

    Basically there is no remotely simple way to upgrade your drive other than with the 64 GB SSD that you would need to pull out of a rev A air.

    Other than Ebay, where the hell would I find something like that =(

    Online stores have them for the same price as a refurb MBA Rev A =(
