    Recently bought a mid 2011 Macbook Air and it came with a massive 480gb SSD. This is way more than I need so hoping to downsize to a 128 or 256gb ssd

    It is the bare drive shown here

    SSD for MacBook Air 2011 - OWC Aura Pro Sandforce Driven

    It is a five minute job to swap the ssd ( see video at the above link )

    Anybody want to swap?

    For trade purposes I would price this at £400

    I'm quite interested. I have a 128 GB SSD in mine, and definitely could use more space... I am in London too, so we could meet over lunch to swap the drives. Do you have the tools to open the MBAs up?

    Okay, I'm seriously considering it now. Give me this afternoon to mull over the price and my options (I might sell some stuff to cover it, plus I need to make sure I want to upgrade my current machine and not just get a 2013 model)

    I have a 256gb SSD from 13" Air and would be interested in a trade.

    Also based in London.
