    the 2012 macbook air maxes out at 512gb, but the blade style ssd looks the same as a macbook pro retina ssd.

    anyone think it's possible to take a 768gb ssd from a mbpr and use it in a 2012 mba?

    Probably. The 2012 Air and MBPr use the same proprietary SATA connector.

    It may be possible but how would you go about sourcing a 768GB SSD from the MBPr? It likely would cost a very pretty penny. Also using a lowercase b means bits and an uppercase B means bytes. The proper usage is GB

    and you weren't curious about the complete lack of capitalization?

    ok, a 768gB ssd.

    i was just wondering. it would be kind of neat to have a 768gb macbook air, no?

    768GB

    I do agree with you a 768GB Mini would be nice. I wonder why it isn't a choice, for a premium of course. The 2011 Mini with a 512GB SSD is sometimes restrictive so I am waiting on delivery of a MBPr 768GB.

    The connectors are the same but the boards are different shapes, so it won't fit:

    Sure it will, just take some heavy duty shears to it. I can guarantee that it will not work though.

    careful there, one of us might be confused and think you're talking about a 100gb ssd.
