    As the title says, I'm keen on taking advantage of the current Amazon deal of the day for Sandisk items, particularly this SSD. Can anyone confirm that it will or won't fit my 2012 15" Retina MBP? It seems like it would, but I can't tell for sure ... I know Apple changed some things in the 2013+ drives in the Retinas. Thanks in advance!

    It will not fit. Your 2012 Retina internal drive is Apple flash storage. The SATA3 SSD in your link will not physically fit in in the area nor have the right connector.

    Like CoastalOR mentioned, these use a different configuration and a standard SSD will not fit. But Transcend makes a replacement here that will fit.

    Bummer. Well, thanks all! I appreciate it. I guess the Transcend or OWC options are still the only ones.
