I want to know if the SSD is SATA3
How can you tell for sure? My System Info for the new Air shows a Link Speed of 6 Gigabit and a Negotiated Link Speed of 6 Gigabit. My last Air had a Link Speed of 6 Gigabit but the Negotiated Link Speed was only 3 Gigabit.
Disk Speed Test for the new Air shows a write speed of 325.6 MB/s and a read speed of 446.2 MB/s. The same test on the older Air had a write speed of 237.8 MB/s and a read speed of 258.6 MB/s.
Awesome, thanks for sharing. Any possibility you can run some 3d benchmarks, or try some games to see in what area your FPS are? I'd be very interested in knowing how the HD4000 compares to previous generations.
That's interesting. So the processor upgrade for the 13" isn't worth it (from 6915 to just 7007), but the (marginally) more expensive processor upgrade on the 11" is well worth it (from 5770 to 7004).
What?That's only if you're upgrading from a 2011 MBA with models you mentioned. If you're new to the MBA then it doesn't make a difference which one you get since they both perform at 7004-7007. You pick based on other features, bigger screen vs smaller screen, shorter vs longer battery, extra slot vs no extra slot, greater screen resolution vs less screen resolution, smaller footprint vs larger footprint, less weight vs more weight, etc.
