Long story short,

my son and I both running MBAirs, I own bot a 2012 11" which is the one I use the most often and a 13" in its latest review, my son owns a 13" like mine but with a 128GB SSD, I'd like to at least give his one a bigger storage capacity (kids need more space...), either 256 or 512 (or whatever close to that) without to spend a fortune (seen 480GBs for over 300$$$ which is what I still am waiting to lower to get a 1TB for my old MBPro 15" late 2011).

I checked on OWC which I remember being a well known source of Mac spares, any other hint or suggestion to upgrade the 13" and, maybe, my tiny 11" without to have to go to the bank for a mortgage?

Grazie
