    I'm pretty sure they don't sell a converter for mSATA to PATA, and most likely I'd assume it would be too big to fit in the chassis even if they did. Sorry!

    Nope, unfortunately no such converter exists. You'd have to find a PATA SSD, then the proper cable to connect it to the logic board.

    A company called RunCore makes an SSD for the first generation MacBook Airs. They are pricey, however. 64GB is $210 and 128GB is $389.
