    126 views and no comments. I guess  must have a free no questions asked swap out period I didn't know about.

    When I go and buy my MBA, I'll keep returning it till I'm 110% happy with every single component :D

    I almost thought you guys were too intoxicated after last night or something to type something coherent. But at least one of you have come out of a coma :D Thanks for the info mate. It's always good to hear some  reps go the extra distance to make a customer happy :p

    However I got the impression that the people taking back their MBA's were 1. after they got home, 2. played with it, 3. fondled it to their hearts content, 4. downed a couple of beers and began testing it, 5. checking what model screen they have and then 6. after finding out their SSD is only benching 550 Read/write instead of 800MB/s decide, dang it, I want a faster one or want an LG or Samsung screen then 7. rock back to the store asking for another machine. Quite different from testing IN-STORE.

    Well the first part of this is easily remedied: get something with more than 128 GB. The 128's, Samsung or not, are going to generate artificial benchmark numbers lower than a higher capacity NAND. Less chips to sequentially write to at once = lower benchmarks. Several threads on this. Hopefully people aren't taking back 128 after 128 after 128. :eek:
