I bought a Macbook Air with a 256 GB in mid 2013.
I bought a Macbook Pro with a 128 GB in mid 2014.
I'd like to swap the SSDs if possible. Are the parts compatible?
I'm looking at these two guides on iFixit.
The parts look compatible, but I'd like to a little further confirmation before dissecting both of the laptops.
I just did a speed test on each drive.
Model Read Write Vendor
Macbook Air 13" Mid-2013 ~750 MB/s ~700 MB/s Samsung/Samsung
Macbook Pro 13" Mid-2014 ~750 MB/s ~350 MB/s Sandisk/Marvell
The Macbook Air's SSD has double the write speed! So if it works, I have even more (than disk capacity) to gain from making the swap.
Makes me really sad that Apple isn't more specific with these details on their website.
Macbook Air P5 Pentalobe, T5 Torx
Macbook Pro T5 Torx
I ordered the iFixit 54-Bit Driver Kit which includes the tools I'll need to try this.
I'll post the results here once I attempt the surgery!
