Mid 2011 MacBook Air Still Has User-Replaceable SSD

July 22, 2011

The rumors about the new MacBook Air having the SSD Chips soldered onto the motherboard turned out (thankfully) to be false. The teardown of the new Air by iFixit proves that, like the previous generation Air, you can pick up an even speedier SSD from a third party if you are so inclined. 

The bad news, from iFixit, is that the memory is still soldered to the motherboard which makes upgrading almost impossible. This means that whatever your MacBook Air comes with when you purchase or order it is what you are stuck with. This is why I recommend the 11.6″ MacBook Air with 4GB of memory and a 128 GB SSD for the ultimate portability laptop that will last a few years.
