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.

Anyway, I went to the Sony store and bought a Vaio for $399, saving myself $600!

So what you have bought actually?
Air is Core2Duo + Geforce 320M + fast SSD +
right-sized keyboard + excellent touch pad, etc.
Cheap Vaio netbooks is nowhere near.

It appears it isn't such a fast SSD, though...

This remark can be applied to anything. Something is always faster-bigger, but 150MB/s is already quite fast.
