It doesn't work like that with ultrabooks. Its often a crappy screen+small ssd+ the lowest end i5 they can find.

Dell's SSD OEM tends to be Samsung and its often the previous gen EVO SSDs. So I'm betting it'll be something like either an 840 EVO or one of their mSATA SSDs.

mSata ssds are more common in ultrabooks so I'm guessing there will be no speed difference, as that is the case with their 840 evo msatas.

(this is based on what i've seen Dell use in desktops and some further googling)

Ultrabooks use tend to use mSata (well the nice, expensive ones do..) as they are tiny and save alot of space.


Quite a few companies tend to use Micron or Toshiba as their SSD oem brand of choice. I'm not entirely sure if dell are the only ones to use Samsung SSDs though.
