    1. For some reason, when I right click -> Get Info on my MBA 13in. SSD it says Capacity: 120.47 GB / Avail: 226.55 GB. Why does it say this when my SSD is 128 GB?

    2. I tried putting my iTunes library (5 GB) on a 16gb SDHC (Patriot Class 6) but I've found it to be so slow and unresponsive compared to being on the SSD! Even though I don't want the space taken up on my SSD, I find the friggin 5 second delay being so annoying compared to having it instantaneous response on my SSD. Since my library is so small, I may keep it on my SSD for now. Do other SDHC users notice the delay?

    the transfer speeds on sdhc cards suck really bad. its not just you. its slower then a usb to 2.5 inch laptop drive. really aweful. i tried the same thing on my air by using a sdhc card as extra space from the internal. it was so bad it was unusable

    The Get Info returns the number in computer speak. The 128GB is marketing speak.

    Computer Speak: GB = 1024*1024*1024
    Marketing Speak: GB = 1000*1000*1000

    That's not going to account for the 106GB difference in the capacity/available space :p
