The gang over at Ars Technica got their hands on both an SSD-packed Macbook Air as well as a regular, HDD-equipped model and then put both through their paces to see if the $1,300 difference in price was worth it. So they had two computers, both exactly the same save a 200Mhz bump in processor speed and a swapping out of a 4200rpm PATA drive for a hot, hot SSD drive. So did the performance shoot through the roof, confirming all of our wildest wet dreams about SSDs? Uh, no, not really.
