    Hello, looks like good prices on this MyDigitalSSD BP4 50mm mSATA SSD, wondering if it would fit into a Macbook Air.

    Looks nearly 1/3 the size of the normal stick, so you can't screw it in like the typical Macbook Air SSD.

    Sorry, no :( Apple uses a proprietary connector and ssd. That SSD is only meant for PCs with intel technology that uses it as a large cache.

    The SSD needs to have a PCIe connection. It's NOT proprietary to Apple but it is a bit harder to find, especially in a form factor that would allow you to secure it in a MacBook Air. Other World Computing has some options available but I haven't seen any others really hit the market yet.

    I believe just the current 2013 models have switched to PCIe, the former models used SATA.
