I have an old Macbook Air around here and the SSD just went to see it's maker. I know it's quite an old machine, but as a first computer for our daughter (11) I think it should still suffice. I would need to buy a new SSD. The old one is already removed from the unibody, so I have alle the tools and knowledge to do the exchange on the hardware site.
I don't want to use an adapter for a new SSD to fit in the Apple 16+12 socket and I found these models should fit directly. Can anyone proof, that these drives work for a Macbook Air 6,2.
- Transcend Jetdrive 820
- Transcend Jetdrive 850
- OWC Aura N2
- OWC Aura Pro X2
And would I need to take any other steps then just replacing the old drive and then start in recovery mode (I guess) to install an OS? No fancy other stuff like soldering Pin 6078 to 8075 (just some random numbers) or anything like this necessary? Does anyone have experience with one of these SSDs or is there even a cheaper option?
