Apple MacBook SSD Performance

Here are some Performance tests with different Apple MacBook Systems. I configured a 20% spare capacity via partitioning inside Mac OS X. That means I reduced the usable size of the System by 20%. For example: My MacBook 15,4" Retina has a 512GB SSD, 500GB are usable by the OS and I reduced that partition to 400GB to maximize the performance.

All tests are done with Blackmagic Disk Speed Test:

MacBook Air 11" (Mid 2013)
