    They're probably using a low-transfer speed SSD. The seek time will still make it much faster than an SAS or SATA drive.

    If that's advertising which drive to choose, they should post seek times. That would sell them more SSDs.

    it being a mac has nothing to do with it. they are probably using old tech. best call them up and ask what drive they use.

    All the new Mac-book Air's have SSD's, as far as I know. Thats how they made them thinner.

    Well, the new Macbooks uses slower drives by Toshiba, but you're right that they shouldn't be that slow. Weird.

    "Macs use the same hardware as PCs and are just more expensive". Isn't that the current #1 anti-Mac/pro-PC argument? I guess maybe it only applies when people want it to. LOL.

    this combines with Sandybridge and OSX Lion would be one amazing laptop

    He's probably googling for more info to bash Macintosh since this thread is not going where he wanted it to go.

    those specs look right...did anyone think to look at what type of SSD's those are? Those are probably the SLC (old mlc) laptop SSD's (as in not the big cool square ones that look like small bullet proof bibles) that you can easily find on newegg. observe.

    Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAA128MAG-1G1 1.8" 128GB ...

    they may also be using one of the pos PATA or internal pci-e ssd's

    Nah, they're pretty new. It's the same ones used in Kingston’s SSDNow V+, and the interface is mSata.

    gotta be a mistake somewhere. they are trying to sell it as only 2 MB/s faster than the standard drive... (no average user will know about seek time and such)
