    I just got a used Air(128GB SSD 2GB RAM) from one of the presidents at my company I plan to turn it into my travel-for-work machine but I would like to do what I can to get it back into top form. It has an Apple 128GB SSD.

    Is there anything that I can do to help the drives performance or tell if its about to fail?

    Should I just not bother and order another SSD for it?

    It sounds like a 2010 Air. That SSD, unless something is seriously wrong with it, should still be snappy and last for a long, long time. I wouldn't bother upgrading it unless you either are experiencing problems OR just want more space.

    I think its a 2009, I just didn't know if not having any Trim support would mean that it was slowly losing performance like since I don't think it has any garbage collection on it.

    I thought 2010 was the first with the 128GB SSD, but I could be wrong. While it's true that these things will slow down over time, they will still be WAY, WAY faster than any hard drive you have ever used in a laptop.

    The late 2008 - Mid 2009 Air had the 128gb SSD option in a 1.8" form factor.
