It uses a mini-PCIe 'blade' style SSD. Based on previous buying patterns my best guess it will be a Toshiba. Its what they have used in the past.

What will be really interesting is if its TLC or Tosh is getting into the TRI Level Cell 19nm ONFi NAND bizz...and I wouldnt touch a TLC drive with a 1000ft pole.

Edit: Its rated meaningless. By removing the SATA bottleneck its easy to get even crappy drives 'up to' 1GB/s read with LARGE very short bursts.
