Reviewed: OWC MacBook Air 240 GB Aura Pro SSD
Solid state drives (SSD) are fantastic. They are power-sippers as compared to a spinning platter, more resistant to shock, and other elemental damage. Even if you just count the performance increases, it comes as no surprise that Apple has shifted most of its desktop and portable line to SSD storage, but often makes it difficult to upgrade later to a larger SSD drive. Peripheral manufacturer OWC has addressed the upgrade situation with the Aura Pro line of drives for use in the MacBook Air, and MacNN has spent some time with the model for the 2010 11-inch model of Apple's laptop.
