What is 128gb flash storage for a MacBook air, how does it work and is it like a hard drive

  • Best Answer:

    Flash storage is similar to a USB Flash memory device or RAM. It has no moving parts like the traditional platter type hard drive. It functions as the typical hard drive, but does not get as hot, will outlast the platter type drives and is much faster in terms of read and write speeds.
