    Hello folks. I am interested in buying a particular MBA off craigslist today. I was curious how difficult it is to change the HDD to SSD? I don't have the original discs (if it came with one) and nor do i have an external drive. And can you folks recommend a 128gg-256gb SSD? Mahalo!

    The replacement is easy. If you go to the OWC website that have upgrade SSD's for that unit which comes with the tools you will need to remove and replace the drive. As for the software, you can pick uo snow leopard for $25 and use that for your install disk
