Will the MacBook Pro SSD work in my Desktop system?

I want to use the SSD from the MacBook Pro mid 2012 and put into a desktop. Can I do this?

I also have a MacBook Air mid 2012 too. If that has one as well that would be great.

What desktop? Make, model # and year.


Oh, it is a system that I want to build the motherboard supports M.2. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MR3...

Since the M2 blade do not work without issues in Macs, I doubt the Apple blades will work in PCs. Besides Apple has four different types of blades now.

What I do with old blades is put them in the proper OWC Envoy external enclosures and use them for diagnostic and installation drives.

What about the macbook air mid 2012?


The best way to figure this out is to review the system specs across the systems in question:

- MacBook Pro 15" 2.7GHz i7 (Mid-2012)

- MacBook Air 11" 2.0 GHz i7 (Mid-2012)

- MacBook Air 13" 2.) GHz i7 (Mid-2012)

You'll see all three use a SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) interface so you would think it should work based on the specs but there is an issue of size! The Air's use a long narrow SSD whereas the MacBook Pro uses a short and wide unit. So sadly the SSD won't fit across these systems!
