While the bigger, badder, 13-incher Air got a faster and flashier SSD, the 11" model is stuck in 2013 with the same old, same old.

Apple decides not to spread the upgrade fun; we get stuck with a geriatric, 2-year-old SSD. Bring on the extra help to get it up and out of bed.

With a little poking and prodding, it proceeds to spill the beans—er, chips. In fact, they're very much the same chips we dipped into on the mid-2013 version:

8 x SanDisk 05131 016G 16 GB NAND flash memory (128 GB total)

Marvell 88SS9183 PCIe SSD controller

Samsung K4B2G1646E 2 Gb (256 MB) DDR3 SDRAM
