    Someone I know wants to buy a macbook air. I've replaced hard drives on Sony's, lenovos, macbooks etc. but I know some Sony's come with special "non-standard" drive sizes. Does anyone know if the Seagate Momentus laptop drive will fit in the newest macbook air?

    I saw on anandtech you could replace it on the previous model but I thought I'd double check as she needs much more space than 120GB that apple offers.

    The quick answer, No.
    MBA rev.B houses a SATA type.II/LIF socket
    and at the moment, there aren't many manufacturer producing this spec.
    Samsung is one of them, unfortunately the SSD is hardly seen on retail channels.

    You'd be having some hard time finding one MBA rev.B compatible HDD:rolleyes:
