    Just was curious if it's a Samsung one or Toshiba one and what the read/write speeds are?

    If it's anything like the Air, it could be luck of the draw as to which you get :)

    I would guess that they would be using both, if that's what they have been doing with all of their other computers with mobile processors.

    I was just curious of the model numbers. Either way, both will be better than a 5,400 rpm hard drive.

    Toshiba here...

    I've got TS256C. 180 MB/s write, 204 MB/s read. Pondering options, I wanted to be able to take advantage of SATA III.

    I'd say you get the default hdd and buy your own aftermarket ssd rather than playing SSD roulette with apple.
