    Which SSD do I need to upgrade my 11 inch "Early 2015 Macbook Air"?

    Can anyone provide a link to one, or some more info?

    Googling leads to mass confusion...

    Does this model have an M.2 slot which supports M.2 PCIe 80MM drives ("2280")?

    Or is it some different kind of PCIe drive?

    It uses Apple custom interface, while similar to M.2 it is not the same.

    This sucks... From what I see is only one vendor (OWC) that sells these, at really expensive prices... is there any other place besides OWC to get them? (Transcend doesn't seem to have a JetDrive for the 2015 Airbook).

    OWC is the only vendor I've found.

    Sometimes you can find the Apple OEM drives for sale on eBay. I have no idea where these vendors get them, but they seem to be legit.

    Unfortunately, IMO you should get a big enough SSD when you purchase the MBA because the upgrades are just too expensive. :(
