Hi

I have bought a MBA very cheap,
I got it cheap because it had to be data wiped (blanco'ed)
But if it can't be wipe then the hard drive is removed, which this one had the SSD removed.
So I have a MBA and I bought a SSD, what I don't have is the cable that connects from the SSD to the logic board.
Can someone tell me where to get it?
It's model number is A1304 late (2008)

Thanks

Turns out i got the cable for the SSD from the apple shop,
the problem is i have a SSD with a different fitting,
The cable end is about 10mm and the SSD fitting is about 15mm,
Are the MBA SSD different from standard SSD?
Can some one point me in the right direction on where to buy the correct SSD.

Many thanks
