you will need to purchase the appropriate external enclosure from ebay,

they will run you about $20 CAD

if you would tell me the revision mba i can tell you what type of enclosure you will need.

Thanks.
I have the first rev, 1,8ghz.

Are there any connectors available to fit into another box?
and could I put this SSD into my old Powerbook G4 with some adaptor?

MacModMachine- Do you know what type of adapter is required to do this with a rev B MBA SSD?

I would prefer straight to SATA, but at this point anything is fine (USB2, etc.)
