    Hi Guys,

    I've seen Sonnet's external SSD enclosure kit, but I'm looking for something a bit less permanent. Does anyone know if this device at Fry's:

    http://www.frys.com/product/6149979?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

    Will accommodate the SSD from a 2012, 15" rMBP?

    Thanks in advance.

    Posting description below in case the link breaks:

    No, the SSD of the rMBP is a custom plug, so you will need one of this to make it work: (will convert the custom plug to a Sata port):

    They sell the card for about $18 at Ebay:

    Thank you very much

    Was hoping to pick up something locally this weekend, but looks like I'll need to order this.

    Thanks again.
