First off, this isn't about DVD copying of disks we OWN, its about SSD speed and why encoding took so long on the Air. We BOUGHT two movies for a trip and are using Handbrake on two machines as a race. One is our black friday $300 Win7 Celeron Acer and the other is our new Air 13". Acer - Straight off DVD took 1:30 Air - Video_TS file we put right on the SSD drive took 2:15 So does anyone know why the Air lost this race? I thought the SSD would be super fast but it wasn't. And also, Im also trying with RipIt which is pretty fast but its at 1:30 now and only 85% which is slower than my old plain macbook + dvd drive.
