Source?

My experience, having actually owned a 2011 MacBook Air with the "Toshiba drive that fails like crazy" is that it Apple's flash + OS X Lion, is faster then Vertex 3 + Windows 7. My coworker has the vertex 3 in his 2011 XPS laptop. I beat him by 5 seconds on boot, can open MS Office faster, shut down faster, etc.

I'm failing to see how my real life experience with their flash chips was "crap total and absolute crap".
