Apple Now this is interesting. My brand-new MacBook Air 11.6" is at my local Apple retailer because either the SATA part of the logic board or the SSD died mysteriously, and here we have Apple blocking PhotoFast from selling their faster, more spacious replacement drives.

Sorry, I'm afraid I don't know what part of that you need clarification on. I re read it, but it still makes sense to me. Maybe you could add some key phrases in your question that would allow me to expand upon my answer in that direction.

How about RTFA because it is clearly noted in the article itself where it states the following:

PhotoFast’s third-party SSD upgrade for the new MacBook Airs read and write at 250MB/s while Apple’s included SSD runs at between 150MB/s and 160MB/s. Now, according to a source close to the company, Apple contacted PhotoFast last week and had them stop all production of their new MacBook Air SSD upgrades.


That is what he is addressing - if I can understand his post with 4 beers inside me then I'm sure anyone can of sober disposition.
