    So back in 2008 when the Macbook air was announced, it came standard with an 80GB hard drive. It was also upgradeble to a 64GB solid state drive.

    Does anyone here remember the cost needed for the change from 80gb hdd to 64gb ssd back in 2008?

    From everymac.com...

    'When first released, the upgrade from a 1.6 GHz processor to a 1.8 GHz processor cost US$300 by itself, and the upgrade from the 80 GB hard drive to the 64 GB solid-state drive cost a massive US$999 premium. On July 8, 2008, Apple dropped the processor upgrade price to US$200 and the SSD upgrade price to US$599.'
