    I have the 64GB SSD from a rev a macbook air laying around. Is it possible to install this into a MBP? I found some adapters online. Anyone tried anything like this?

    I know PATA is slower than SATA and this disc is not the fastest SSD, but it still is quite fast in my experience. I also know this disc is smaller, but should be possible to fasten in a way..?

    Nope, they're incompatible interfaces and there's no adapters that will allow you to use that SSD internally. I suggest getting an external case for it, you'll have better luck finding one that uses PATA
