Okay I'm receiving a 64GB 2nd hand MBA pretty soon. I'm considering buying a 128GB SSD and replacing it with that.

I was wondering, can I take the 64GB SSD and converting it into a 2.5" form factor, then putting it into another computer or something? Like my MBP or my desktop?

Thanks

This is external though. I'm looking for a way to put it in internally.

Other World Computing (OWC) announced Thursday morning the immediate availability of two external hard drive enclosures for 2010 and 2011 MacBook Air Solid State Drives.
Sorry, not what I'm looking for :(

Nope. The MBA's SSD is a fitting unique to that computer - it can't be fitted to anything else, with the exception of OWC's external casing posted earlier.

That OWC case is junky as well:

1. Too dam big
2. SSD bowed once mounted
3. Bowing made it finiky when connecting
4. WAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY over priced.
