Super Talent SSD upgrade
Super Talent on Wednesday announced the release of a choice of three solid state drives meant as upgrades for the ASUS S101 Eee PC netbook. The standard netbook preloaded with Windows offers only 16GB of storage space, and the Super Talent drives are available in 16GB, 32GB or 64GB capacities, allowing users to double or quadruple the available onboard storage. All three drives share the same 90MBps read and 55MBps write speeds and outpace most notebook hard drives as a result.
The three drives have a SATA Mini PCIe interface to attach to the S101 and are available for purchase now. The 64GB version is priced at $169; pricing for the other two models isn't mentioned.
