Add to that the fact that it is based on the new Haswell chipset and it is the first with the new PCIe storage solution, a solution that will definitely appeal to media professionals who transfer countless gigabytes of media files on a daily basis.
The new 2013 MBA has set itself up for a definite following.
The Samsung SSD will be found in 256 and 512GB models while a SanDisk Marvell based SSD is found in the 128GB SSD contained MBA.
There is also a Samsung 512MB LP (low power) DDR2 DRAM cache present on the SSD along with eight modules of Samsung MLC NAND flash memory, numbered K9HFGY8S5C-XCKO.
We figured that it was a proprietary design and based very closely on the NGFFM.2.
The problem is that both Apple and Samsung are very tight lipped because of contractual agreements.
The whole object is change something in the design just enough to make it impossible to substitute another more common part.
Similar to what all these non-manufacturing companies do with GPU manufacturers too.
This enables companies like Apple to claim they actually invented something new or different.
The bottom line, its all part of these Gypsy Barker Type Snake Oil Selling Companies (that dont even make any of their own parts, let alone assemble them any more), Planned Obsolescence Business Model to always keep a NEW.
Improved or Revolutionary Sticker on the Box;-P so you have buy a new one to keep up with iJones No doubt SAMSUNG has their own far better surprises in store for us.
But at least they make their own parts and assemble their own products.
Some of those same parts end up in CrApple from Apple products.
Not only that, but same parts coming off the same Fabrication lines in Austin Texas too.for me.
NEW Macbook Air. could take a hike to the Dark Side of the Moon, before Id ever buy one.
Its giving Samsung a black eye before this type form factor launches fully.
It is almost like there is a configuration issue with BootCamp or any Win7 installation that is partnered with IOS.
Ssd Air 2013 Drivers Without Some
Because the Intel Macs boot UEFI rather than BIOS, Windows wont load AHCI drivers without some major tweakery (Google BootCamp Win 7 AHCI), consequently the bog standard MS IDE drivers are loaded and performance is pretty bad.
Apple dont seem overly concerned about correcting this Reply.
On 2013 MBA you can install Windows 8 in EFI mode (this will install Windows with AHCI drivers) via bootcamp using the latest OS X updates.
Performance is not really fair in Parallels as typical reads and writes are 3058MBs and 2730MBs.gotta love virtual environments.
Our system has had BootCamp removed and we are running Parallels right now.
