        Answer

        Technically, it's both. It's a SATA drive, not an IDE. It will fit in any laptop or desktop built since 2006.

          Answer

          YES YES YES! I have this in my mid 2012 MBP typing this answer right now. It works awesome. I definitely don't regret it at all! I'll add a photo from the black magic disk speed test app available on the mac app store. It's for the SSD currently in my comp and after about 3 months of normal usage. Boot time is 10s or less. Shuts off almost instantly. Apps are open before they have a chance to bounce on the dock. That's including things like photoshop, word, etc. All work incredibly fast. My best advice is to get this and use carbon copy cloner to clone your current HD (or do a fresh install...its up to you)... search google for a mac app called "Trim Enabler" and get the premium version. This will allow you to turn off the sudden shock sensor since you don't have a spin drive anymore as well as some other nifty features.

            Answer

            It does not come with the 3.5" adapters or SATA cables. However they are not expensive, you can get both for about $10 at various stores online.

              Answer

              It is Sata III 6Gb/s so you get 540MB/s sequential read and 520MB/s sequential write speeds. But probably in real world is a bit slower.

            Why did it not work in my 15" mid-2010 macbook pro? More then a few people asking this on forums. I wish I had read these prior to wasting time installing.   (1 Answer)

              I'm guessing that it does not work for the same reason that my mid-2010 macBook Pro will not accept any more upgrades (the latest two)- I think it is the same reason that my Iphone 4, and 5 will not accept upgrades. They are all limited in hardware capabilities. (E.g. it does work with mid-2011.) But I did find that although Samsung software did not work on my WD hard drive (IDE) in my desktop,(Asus) Apricorn did clone my hard drive contents to the Samsung EVO, and it works very well. Perhaps an Apricorn clone might make your MacBook work. It is a long shot. I'd like to know.
