MacBook Air components are officially non-user-replaceable, though third-parties do sell upgrade kits for the SSDs. The flash memory and battery are enclosed within the casing, with RAM soldered onto the motherboard. The flash memory, difficult to access, has a 128 MB cache and a mSATA connection (updated to a proprietary PCIe interface) to the motherboard.

My laptop was so slow, it would have improved my life more being used as a door stop. I didn't want to give up on her though and buy a new one. I wanted to avoid the hell that is the Apple store and Marin Mac Tech was the first to appear in a search; it was one of those times when the universe aligns perfectly. I feel so lucky to have had Shiva work on my 2011 Macbook Pro! It's becoming increasingly rare to find someone passionate about the professional service they provide, this is not the case with Shiva, his thorough knowledge and passion for craft assured me that my computer was in very capable hands. After a hard drive replacement and service, my computer is running better and faster than ever! I am so happy. Thank you .Thank you. thank you. I will be referring my clients and everyone I know to Shiva and Marin Mac Tech.
If you are an IT rookie they will tell you what you want to hear. Just try one time to ask a question about the SSL problem from Feb 2015, and they do an about face. In August 2015, my MacBook got hacked with the same SSH Cross Site Scripting using the Man-In-The-Middle. When I called Apple, they were dead silent. Dissembling, misdirecting, obfuscating, worst of all no help. Denied it had anything to do with "Apple" but refused to offer even the simplest of suggestions on how I can prevent it in the future. How do I know if I have the SSL fix in MBP? Well I can't because the SSL problem was in iOS. I went to the developers website and found the same iOS SSL is part of Yosemite. So again, misdirection and lies.
Much like Apple handles support calls over the phone, soon only customers within their warranty period will be able to access online chat support through getsupport.apple.com for free. For others, Apple will charge what it refers to as a “pay per incident” fee or require the purchase of an extended warranty through AppleCare. Previously all online support chat features were available for free to users worldwide. Some users might have noticed back in August when Apple revamped its support sites that it started listing a $19.99 per incident fee for chat support. However, up until now AppleCare hasn’t actually been charging users to access the feature.
