OWC Unboxes, Tests Speeds of SSDs in New 2015 MacBook Airs

Perhaps overshadowed by Apple’s introduction of the new 12” Retina MacBook, the 11” and 13” MacBook Air models were also given some attention at yesterday’s Spring Forward event – but to much less fanfare.

We were able to get our hands on the new 2015 MacBook Air models and performed a teardown on both and ran benchmarks on the 13″ model which featured a 4 lane PCIe SSD. (See our unboxing of the 2015 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina display here.)

UPDATE: OWC Now Offers SSD Upgrades for 2013-Current MacBook Air & MacBook Pro with Retina display models

Check out what we found below:
