If it's on this list [everymac.com], it fits a 2.5" SSD just fine.

If it's a Retina model, then according to this [ifixit.com] it uses a proprietary PCIe connector, which this SSD will not fit.

Good deal, it's nice to see SSD's continue their downward pricing march. Maybe by BF this year we'll see a 1TB SSD at this price point Wink

no point buying HDD nowadays huh? But how come some HHDs can last for a ridiculous amount of time, e.g. I have a Dell laptop that is 7 years and still booting up to windows.

I am installing SSD drives in every desktop and laptop in my household. But yeah, a little worried, I have ancient computers which run just fine. I hope those SSD's give me at least five or six years.

The ones I installed in my desktop 8 or 9 years ago are still working fine and I only shut it down when needed.

Its a mixed bag. I had one of the first Intel SSDs, 80gb and it died on me in a month.
I have a Seagate 2TB and 1TB chugging a long fine after 5 years. I've had Western Digital 500gb die on me after a few years. Western Digital 2TB die on me after 2 months.

I was just doing a clean up on Sunday and found files still from 1999 and what not. Every few years I just dump the previous hdd to a bigger one.

But SSD is a world of difference. I've been looking for something in 500gb range to replace a 250gb, but hard for me to look at anything other than Samsung because how much better they have been in this realm.

I have a home media server with almost 15TB of storage (lots of redundancy). Speed is not important as the drives are fast enough for everything. The price per GB is way cheaper than flash , even with how cheap its getting.

Would be nice in the near future to just replace all that with two SSDs though. I am sure someday not so far off. But then again if I lose one drive I don't lose anything, if I lose a couple I only lose some stuff.
