I need the dimensions of the "gum-stick" SSD (solid-state drive) used in 2011 MacBook Air models, preferably in cm or mm.

  • If you need them to be that precise, perhaps you need to disassemble your MacBook Air, remove the module, and measure it with calipers yourself.

  • See if there is any data at iFixit.com.

  • @WheatWilliams I'm not asking for extra precision, just for measures in SI units. iFixit only gives the thickness of the drive: 2.45 mm. I need the width/length, and I still don't have the pentalobe screwdriver to open my MBAs.

  • You could also check with Other World Computing at macsales.com. And either Other World or iFixit would be glad to sell you a pentalobe screwdriver. :-)

    Can I be curious? Why do you need to know that? :) Apr 18, 2012 at 14:09
