Where i can buy the PCIe SSD card, someone?

Claudio Vargas - Ответить

I can supply these cables. Please reply to this thread.

Thomas Hall -

I found the ssd kit on eBay for $69ish. However, it doesn't include the ssd. Is it mPCI-e or is it an M.2 module?

Angelo - Ответить

The SSD is neither, I believe. It is the same as the SSDs in the 2014 and up MacBook Pros. Pin format is 12+16
