    The Macbook Air uses a custom Samsung 830 SSD which I believe is a bit faster than the Crucial. If you put that SSD in the Macbook Pro, the pro would be quicker due to the better (more/quicker) processor, ram, etc..

    Thanks. So if I put in a 2.5" Samsung 830 I should see comparable read/write speeds?

    In theory yes but I don't know if Apple did any special tweaks or anything special. I know I have the Samsung 830 SSD in my 2012 pro and I get 10mb less than the stated speed on the Samsung box which is pretty good. I know my pro is faster than a Macbook Air so I'm happy with it.
