Is the Samsung EVO 850 SSD compatible with the MacBook Air?

I need to buy hard drives for a few Macbook Airs, I'm considering the Samsung Evo 850 after reading some raving reviews about its performance. However, I can't seem to find any documentation from Samsung that indicates the compatibility of this drive. Can anyone tell me if this drive is compatible with the following Mackbook Air models:

"Here's the Specs on this 2.5"" drive: http://www.samsung.com/global/business/s...

None of the machines you listed will use it, They all take Apple proprietary mSATA flash drives.

Go to the guides on the individual machine and look at the Guides, the part numbers will be listed.

"No. A 2.5"" drive is not used on any of those macs and use a special form factor that is similar to m.2.

Lol rip, I got the wrong form factor.."

"You may want to look at these Apple compatible SSD drives: Transcend SSD.

While I love Samsung drives they just won't work in your system."
