If I Purchase Macbook Air w/ HDD Drive...Can I Upgrade Later??
 
Hello. If I purchased a standard Macbook Air (HDD)...could I upgrade to SDD later?? I hear their might be an intel flash drive that could increase the MBA's storage to 120GB.

the hard drive of the macbook air is not user replaceable
of course it is possible - but it is a lot more difficult and will void your warrenty

so I could replace the standard drive with the SSD drive....right? of course I would take it to the apple store.

Sure you could but bring a motorize wheelchair because it will cost an arm and leg and it's hard to operate a wheelchair with one arm. ;) Even the small SSD drives are very expensive.

MLC media prices have already gotten pretty low.. SLC will, I'm sure continue to drop, one of these days.. and probably before we realize it they won't be that expensive.

No, Apple will not install a different hard drive for you. And if you do it or have someone else do it, it will void your warranty.

I've seen videos and stuff of people doing it, so it can be done. Probs be cheaper aswell, apple normally overcharges for everything on macs, eg ram.

For that matter so does most everyone else. Buying from third party is always cheaper.
