6 February 2008 @ 14:00MacBook Air HDD vs. MacBook Air SSD

Ars Technica benchmarked a MacBook Air with a tradition hard disk against a MacBook Air with a solid-state drive (you know, that $1300 option) and found some interesting results.

the SSD does worse in sequential disk tests and writing in general, but spanks the HDD in random disk tests and reading from the disk.

Another important note: Ars didn’t see any noticeable improvement to battery life with the SSD model as one would suspect.
