Many of the most popular netbooks that Asus and other companies make use SSDs rather than traditional hard drives. The SSD helps the little systems get more run time out of their battery packs and helps them perform better. If you are looking for more performance from a netbook that came with an SSD from the factory, Active Media has a new line of upgrade SSDs called the SaberTooth S4 series.
The new line of upgrade SSDs are mini PCIe cards that use the 3Gbps SATA-II interface. The SSDs use MLC NAND technology for performance and reliability. The drives are guaranteed to be compatible with Eee PC models S101, 900, 900A, 901, and 1000.
Other features of the SSD line includes ECC error correction, bad bit management, and wear leveling algorithm to extend the SSD life. The drives will come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB and work with windows 7, Vista, XP, Linux, and Mac OS 10.x and up. Sequential read speed for the drives is up to 130MB/sec and sequential write is up to 50MB/sec.
