    Interesting - I wonder where Apple sources their SSDs from – there must have been a significant enough number of failures for them to offer replacements.
    IMO the failures are strange, as recent SSDs are generally far more reliable than those of several years ago. o_O

    Maybe Apple buys low-bid hardware and sells as premium ;)

    At least they are offering free replacements, good decision.
