    You know...you should be able to use one of those PCI-E to M2 adapters (like this @ $29: Addonics M2 PCIe SSD - PCIe 3.0 4-Lane Adapter - Newegg.com) to add an M.2 slot to almost any PC (well any that has an available PCIe slot that is).

    So perhaps Calemus!

    Yeah, probably. But Crucial and Samsung will likely iterate 2 versions of their product before Intel decides to kick out a successor to the 750. It always seems to me that Intel is taking the approach of pushing the architecture to prove something can be done, and then letting it's partner Crucial/Micron and other vendors take the lead on producing it for a reasonable price.

    So...instead of throwing money at Intel, I usually wait a bit and throw money at Samsung and Crucial.

    I always think that Intel "dabbles" in SSD's. They certainly produce some good ones, but the price premium and slow model iteration always ends up steering me away from them!
