    It came with the original SSD upgrade from Apple. The SSD is old, but I'm not too worried yet since it's really not going to get a lot of use. We'll see how it goes though.

    First thing I did was take it apart and clean it with a fine brush and vacuum.

    What I found interesting is the claim of the new Macbook Air not being a redesign, but being able to use the 'new' keyboard. Makes me wonder if this new keyboard is swappable in other MBPd, and if...
