Default The New MacBook Air Uses Toshiba's SATA 6Gb/s SSDs UPDATE: Samsung Too

Yesterday's keynote was certainly one of the biggest events for Macs that Apple has held in years. The main focus was obviously in the new MacBook Pro with Retina screen but the MacBook Air also received a fairly substantial update. Not only did the MacBook Air get Ivy Bridge processors and USB 3.0; Apple is now offering up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB SSDs.

Outside of the showcased upgrades, it's always interesting to see if Apple has made any other hardware changes. As usual, Apple has not published the supplier of the components such as SSDs, nor has Apple published any data other than the capacity of the SSD. That means we have to wait for third parties for teardowns and a full list of specifications. Fortunately OWC has gotten their hands on a brand new 13" 2012 MacBook Air and taken it apart, revealing the SSD supplier and other specifications of the SSD.
