I'll leave you with THIS: https://www.startech.com/HDD/Adapters/m2-sata-adapter~S322M225R

Or If you have a truely ancient laptop, THIS: https://www.lindy.co.uk/components-tools-c7/drive-caddies-raid-c321/msata-to-2-5-ide-ssd-drive-7mm-p8706

You can get them considerably cheaper than the figures above if you look around and they both work fairly well.

Of course, in a desktop, space isn't so much of an issue anyway.

You could always use an expresscard SSD, but it's no faster than a sata bus and they've pretty much gone from the market.
