So i wanna get an m.2 ssd for my laptop, but i'm kinda confused after now that m.2 ssd available in nvme and sata, mainly because both have different gold contact, can they actually pretty much go to m.2 slot in any laptop/motherboard that have m.2 or what?

m.2 and nvme attach to motherboard using different connectors so what you need to do is find out what your laptop can accept and then find an m.2 drive that has the same connectors.

this is best way to explian:

I mean m.2 ssd is available in nvme m.2 and sata m.2 right? I saw the sata one have like 2 narrow gold contact on both right and left, meanwhile the nvme m.2 only have like 1 narrow gold contact
