Can I upgrade SSD from 128GB to 256GB?

I bought a 13inch macbook air 2011 edition with 128 GB capacit5y, I want to increase it to 256 as I thought Apple usually charges a premium on flash memory. On ifixit site it was said during teardown that it is possible to increase SSD but not RAM. But can you suggest hopw and where , and if it will be cheaper than Apple ? If not I might as well return 128GB and buy 256 gb one if the price diff is not that much.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

According to nicks source a 240 GB will cost you 519.99 plus shipping. If you can swap it it for less than that I would do the swap.

Thanks, I guess then Apple doesn't overcharge memory in this case (as it does in iPad and iPhone) as I only pay $300 if I swap it at Apple vs $520 with OWC. Obviously it may not have as fast read/write speeds as advertised by OWC in your link but thats not too important for me.
