    I recently upgraded the hard drive of my MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2015). Now, I have an unused SSD 128GB. (See attached photos).

    Anyone had experience in converting an SSD (from a Macbook Air) into an external drive? I am not sure what specific type of enclosure I need to buy.

    I don't think it's worth it if you're connecting just 128GB (capacity/price wise). compatible external case model are expensive around $70. Imho

    Would you be interested in selling it instead?
