MacBook Air 2010 13", can I use any mSATA SSD?

Everymac.com says this model uses a mini sata connector for the hard drive. So I'm wondering...

Has anyone ever tried putting a standard length (ex: Samsung 840 EVO mSATA) in a macbook air 2010?

I understand that the difference in length would mean that I could not screw down the SSD but I'm sure I could figure out an alternative way to hold it in place.

I'm just curious if standard mSATA SSDs will function correctly if installed in a macbook air 2010?

Thanks.

Sorry the answer is no. The SSD Apple uses is not your standard mSATA connection the Samsung 840 EVO SSD has.

You'll need to use one of these: Transcend Jetdrive for MacBook Air or what OWC offers.

Thanks. Was hoping the only difference was the length of the board but oh well.
