    How hard it will be , if you want to add SSD in future to a HDD model MBA?

    will MBA updates its chipset to X4500 if intel releases Montevina in july or august?

    It hs somewhat recent since the air has come out. So I dont think so. Also note that it is a niche market product. Though if you want, you can request apple to change your drive, though it can be a pritty high fee, so it would still add up to ATLEAST $1000 ... thats if the SSD is cheaper within a year (and I dont think it will since smaller SSD are still somewhat new tech.

    Here's a YouTube video that shows you how to get to the drive. Looks fairly easy. Under 10 minutes?

    that's pretty straight on -very tempting now:D:D:D:D

    but x4500 will give extra bonus (100% more) to the current x3100 chip set, which is a valid point to wait for 2-3 months

    I think you would have to be concerned that you can find a PATA ssd drive in the future that's bigger than what they have now. I'm not sure why they didn't just put in a SATA drive from the beginning.
