    What does that mean exactly? What kind of HDD's WILL work?

    It means the shape and electrical connector of the drive in the MacBook Air is non-standard.

    There are (literally?) a couple of companies that make replacement/upgrade drives. I think OWC is one of them but you might want to avoid them due to poor quality. But I haven't been following this closely so I can't give you any more advice than that. I just know the Samsung drive won't work.

    I recently bought a 13" MBA with every intent of upgrading the SSD and memory. I then found out (after purchasing) the laptop isn't able to have either upgraded. I was really bummed at first but I got over it. I only paid $720 for the laptop new at Best Buy and so far I'm really liking the laptop.
