    you will need to purchase the appropriate external enclosure from ebay,

    they will run you about $20 CAD

    if you would tell me the revision mba i can tell you what type of enclosure you will need.

    I have the first rev, 1,8ghz.

    Are there any connectors available to fit into another box?
    and could I put this SSD into my old Powerbook G4 with some adaptor?

    manged to get the data out with a chear enclosure called unis (chinese brand). I took of the cable from the SSD and fit the cable included in the enclosure directly to the SSD.

    MacModMachine- Do you know what type of adapter is required to do this with a rev B MBA SSD?

    I would prefer straight to SATA, but at this point anything is fine (USB2, etc.)
