MBA rev A uses a 40pin ZIF ribbon PATA interface. I can find plenty of ZIF to SATA/PATA/CF adapters (to plug a 1.8" drive into a regular SATA caddy) and plenty of CF to ZIF adapters (so I 'could' use a CF card as a makeshift SSD) but so far no 2.5" PATA or SATA to thus far I'm unable to use a 2.5" or larger drive in my project without connecting it via USB which would just be pointless.

  1. RunCore has 1,8" PATA ZIF drives for Macbook revision A! Get decent performance.
