    Okay I'm receiving a 64GB 2nd hand MBA pretty soon. I'm considering buying a 128GB SSD and replacing it with that.

    I was wondering, can I take the 64GB SSD and converting it into a 2.5" form factor, then putting it into another computer or something? Like my MBP or my desktop?

    Thanks

    This is external though. I'm looking for a way to put it in internally.

    Nope. The MBA's SSD is a fitting unique to that computer - it can't be fitted to anything else, with the exception of OWC's external casing posted earlier.

    1. Too dam big
    2. SSD bowed once mounted
    3. Bowing made it finiky when connecting
    4. WAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY over priced.
