I am more concerned about the air battery problems than the flash drive, the mid 2012 was a bad model!

When I try to install the update from the apply support site, it says ''this computer does not require the update''. Does it mean my drive is safe ??

I just had mine replaced about a month ago, I wonder if the new drive they already put in is good or bad? Nothing happened after the update besides it stating that the firmware was updated on my drive.

That's good service from a committed company! Or one that is afraid of class action lawsuits…

You mean one that tries to bash iPhone by bigger screen and steals from them, they get lawsuits like before, soon they will go dead when apple sues them!
