    No guys, you stuck.
    Apple chose ZIF not SATA, so you out of luck.

    They saved you few bucks you know ... so that motherboard would accommodate [smaller] iPod's hdd without hassle of supporting two interfaces.

    So I guess you should be grateful ?!

    there was a post a while ago about some fella who cracked open his air and found the SATA pins on the motherboard, implying that an MBA could be retrofitted for SATA. i also seem to remember the post (first described on engadget?) talked about an unknown mystery connector on the motherboard -- a female port of sorts with no known function. im no electrical engineer, but am hoping someone more knowledgeable than myself may try this mod sometime down the road.
