I wonder if the SSD with the connector shows below can be plugged it into my PC.

@Hennes I disagree with you editing out the link, that was useful to identify the drive. –  Marcus Chan Feb 2 '13 at 21:27

For future reference, a bit more information would be appreciated. Things like what is the make and model of the SSD in question? What is your "PC"? A laptop? A tower? Running Windows? Linux? OSX? PC is usually not used for Macs but you have tagged this question with the Mac tag. I guess this is a MacBook Air's SSD but it would be nice to know. –  terdon Feb 2 '13 at 21:37
    
Well basicly I can connect it to a Mac or a PC, I just need to connect the MBA's memory to the machine –  issac Feb 2 '13 at 21:40
    
@issac There's actually a much easier solution to your problem if you have another mac with Thunderbolt and a cable: Target disk mode (support.apple.com/kb/PH10725). –  Marcus Chan Feb 2 '13 at 21:42

As long as you have the T key working and it boots, to my knowledge target disk should work, but I have an ancient mac so I haven't tried –  Marcus Chan Feb 2 '13 at 21:49

Apple uses their own non-standard connectors for SSDs for some reason, so it won't work unless someone out there is making an adapter for them, which I doubt there is.

Only one company as far as I can tell is making the enclosures, but it's out of my price range including shipping and everything. –  issac Feb 2 '13 at 21:42
    
There are a few more for example; the only issue is finding what works –  Marcus Chan Feb 2 '13 at 23:08

The OCZ Envoy enclosure you linked to can use a MBA drive as external storage for a PC, but the connector is custom-designed by Apple, so it won't fit inside your PC, sorry.

That's a tiny bit out of my budget, surely there's one avalible on the market –  issac Feb 2 '13 at 21:24
    
Are you looking to connect a drive you already have? If so, eshop.macsales.com/item/Other%20World%20Computing/MAU3ENVOY12 comes without a drive. Do make sure it;s a 2012 drive instead of 2011, though. –  Marcus Chan Feb 2 '13 at 21:26
    
Or are you looking to buy an entire external SSD? In which case there are much cheaper options. –  Marcus Chan Feb 2 '13 at 21:28
    
I'm just looking to connect that to my PC to extract some files because my current MBA screen is broken, I have some pictures that weren't backed up so I NEED some how to get the files –  issac Feb 2 '13 at 21:32
    
Thank's, at the moment I'm looking at all the possibilities at the moment. –  issac Feb 2 '13 at 21:36
