Apple adds faster Samsung SSDs to MacBook Air? It appears that Apple is quietly moving away from Toshiba's X-Gale SSDs to faster Samsung models for its MacBook Air ultra-portable.
Over the last month, Air models have been shipping with two different SSD, the "SM128C" and Toshiba's "TS128C." The SM implies Samsung is the manufacturer, says MSNBC.

The Samsung drive, when benchmarked, shows off 260MB/s read and 210MB/s write speeds compared to the Toshiba which has 210MB/s read and 185MB/s write.

Samsung and Apple have not confirmed so there is no way to know which drive you will get if you are in the market for an Air, but if accurate it may pay to wait a bit longer to ensure you have the faster drive.

They buy hard drives from them and they also sue them claiming they stole the iPhones the "look and feel". I guess business is business.
