Owners like me of the previous generation MacBook Air know that while they’re great computers, they’re plagued by slowness (unless you were smart — and wealthy — enough to opt for an SSD at purchase time). Other World Computing is offering new SSDs that will substantially increase the performance of these machines, as evidenced in the shootout comparison video. I’m tempted to do this myself, as the prices are not too outrageous. Pricing for the highest end model, 480 GB, has yet to be released though the 240 GB already runs US$580, so you can imagine the larger version will cost you nearly as much as a new, current-generation MacBook Air.
