    Yes that will work. Have you looked at the price of a regular 1TB 840 EVO that doesn't require the use of an adapter? It may be a cheaper solution.

    Hey Intell,

    My aim and my second question is that I need to use it aswell with the new rMBP 15 inch

    so I don't wanna change a lot.

    Will it work?

    are the new macs released with mSATA or M2?

    Thanks

    Neither. The current rMBP has a PCIe SSD with a non-standard form factor and connector. No third party replacements are currently available, but OWC is said to be working on one.

    For a non-retina MBP, buy a regular 2.5" SATA SSD like a Samsung 840 Pro (or 850 Pro), or even the 840 Evo (best value for money).

    For the late-2013 rMBPs, you can't get a proprietary, non-M.2 PCIe SSD outside of Apple.

    I've used the 750 GB Samsung 840 EVO on my non-Retina MBP, and it worked a treat. The 1 TB drive won't pose a problem unless you happen to get a defective one out of the box.

    Why not just get a standard sized 2.5" SATA SSD rather than a mSATA SSD with and enclosure adapting it the the 2.5: SATA SSD?

    I have 2 x Samsung Evo 1TB SSD drives configured in a RAID0 in my Mac Pro 4,1.
