    Is 2011 MBA 11 inch (samsung 128GB SSD) capable of SATA 6Gb/s?
    My Profiles says Negotiated Link Speed 6Gbps - I tried resetting SMC (Shift+Ctrl+Alt) but it didn't help...

    I believe the logic board is capable of accepting a SATA 6GB/s card, but the actual cards used are SATA 3GB/s-rated. Perhaps when Ultrabooks start coming out with the 6GB/s cards Apple will make a quiet switch and we'll start the whole "Samsung vs. Toshiba vs. X" SSD issue all over again. :rolleyes:
