Seeing this makes mac owners cry as Apple make proprietary ssds. Would be amazing if there was an adapter for it.

By buying into the Apple economy, you are agreeing to pay 50-100% more for hardware (often with proprietary features and lock outs) than the PC equivalents.

Really, here was me thinking they took standard M.2 form factor drives. Where specified they are of NVMe level making them blisteringly fast.

Has Apple started soldering drives in? They did with memory.

Quite cheap, cheaper than SSD drive, but usually you will need to add an adapter

Really good price! Thx OP!

Adapters are about £5 off eBay but shame this isn't NVME.

Super! I assume there wouldn't be any bottleneck if I use this adapter?

Only bottleneck would be your motherboard depending on port speed.

and you get a laptop Operating system which is much better than windows and a trackpad that no windows trackpad comes NEAR to matching. - running OSX on a windows laptop is pants by the way.

Disclaimer #1 *sent from my Dell XPS 13* (the flagship windows laptop which I thought I bought as an "upgrade" to a macbook pro) just mentioning in case you thought I was just a blind apple fan. I tried both and Macbooks are in another league.

Disclaimer #2 *sent by a Windows 10 desktop user* just mentioning to demonstrate I am very conversant with both OS! I just far far prefer OSX on a portable.

Doesn't make any real world difference - my NVMe drive is rated at ~2200 read and 1250 write but my PC doesn't actually run any faster than when I was booting off a SATA3 SSD.

That being said, they're still nice to have - no power or data cables to mess with - and I might grab this anyway, because my motherboard's second m.2 slot supports m.2 SATA.
