Is this compatible for a macbook pro mid 2014?
Asked by: Alfredo
Unfortunately not since the Macbook has a different pin layout for the ssd. But there is an alternative (a bit more expensive but compatible) https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1239059-REG/owc_other_world_computing_owcssdab2mb05k_480gb_aura_internal_pcie.html It comes in a 480GB and a 1TB with or without an enclosure. The enclosure would be helpful if you plan on cloning your OS and software and you can use your current ssd externally as a portable drive.
