    I believe that the current MacBook Air uses SATA for the interface and this hard drive appears to be PATA.

    Sadly this is 8mm high, the Air only supports 5mm.
    Also, the connectors need to be SATA for Late '08 models, and PATA for early '08 models.
    Finding drives for the Air is an absolute nightmare; I've tried...

    My strategy is to wait 6 - 12 months until SSD prices have come down, as they are predicted to. Then they'll be cheaper and easier to find.

    uh, did you read the two posts before yours? I'm curious because sometimes it feels like people don't read the thread before responding-- the MSNBC thread is a prime example. it's 50 people saying the same thing over and over.

    do you mean the intel x18-m?

    you could probably google that and find the specs sheet and check the size.
