    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?

    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.

    That OWC case is junky as well:

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