    Quick question, will this 2.5" drive fit in my MBP? Do I need a converter so that the 2.5" drive fits in the spot of the 3.5" drive.

    The MBP will accept any 2.5" drive. Are you trying to place it in the HDD slot or the ODD slot. If you are placing in the optibay a caddy such as the OWC Data Doubler is required.

    I'm going to install it in the HD spot. I'm going to remove my Kingston SSD and replaced it with the Intel SSD.

    Should fit no problem. No adapter needed. You may have to use the screws from the old SSD on the new SSD. Aren't they both the same size?

    The new SSD has holes for screws, so I'll just take the screws off of the SSD that's in my MBP right now, and use those.

    Oh, snap... Nevermind you're right they are both 2.5"... I don't know why I thought otherwise. That's why I've been so confused. LOL, wow.
