I'm debating on getting the 13 inch MBA and 13 inc MBP for my wife. I am really leaning towards the air because of the size since my wife and I travel a lot. She will just being using it for browsing the internet, email, word documents, and possibly Netflix. My personal experiences with SSD drives haven't been very good. The few that I have had failed within the first few months and everyone I know that has an SSD had the same issues. Reading online the failure rates are really high for SSD drives. I've been trying to find anyone talking about the failure rates for the MBA SSD but can't find anything. I assume that I can't find anything about it means that it really isn't a problem. However I want to make sure I wouldn't have been better off with the MBP instead of the air because we are constantly replacing the drive. I tried searching this board for things related to this topic and I didn't find anything really answered my question.
