They're selling 256GB in the 11" so I guess so.The 2010 release of MBAs also had SSDs that were not soldered on. Only the RAM was soldered to the logic board (and thus cannot be upgraded). However, the issue with upgrading the SSD (at least in the 11") was the thickness. From what I remember reading, the 11" couldn't handle the thickness of the 256GB SSD, so it wouldn't fit. Have they fixed this issue in this refresh?
That's OWC.Also, there was some company that was making SSDs specifically for the Air. I don't remember the name, if anyone could refresh my memory...
Hah, right on.They're selling 256GB in the 11" so I guess so.
OWC 256GB drive is $520, I see a 128GB drive on ebay for $122. So at first glance you're looking at $400 to upgrade. And I've heard horror stories of people's fancy SSDs being swapped for stock Apple Platter Drives when going into Apple Care for other problems.Is there value in sticking with the stock 128GB and then selling the 128GB and upgrading to 256GB via a 3rd party? or is the Apple charge ($300) for going from 128gb to 256GB reasonable? For someone who is not interested in a performance upgrade.
