SSDs are common in many netbooks and ultraportable notebook computers today thanks to the power miserly nature and better performance. The catch is that some netbooks like the Eee line from Asus have SSDs that offer less performance than can be had with SSDs today.
Thankfully, Active Media has a new line of upgrade SSDs that are compatible with the Eee S101, 900, 900A, 901, and 1000 Eee netbooks. The SSDs use a mini PCIe card form factor and the 3Gbps SATA-II interface.
The SaberTooth S4 SSDs use MLC NAND flash for performance and reliability. ECC error correction is built in and the SSDs have a wear leveling algorithm to prolong their life. The sequential write speed is up to 50MB/sec and sequential read is up to 130MB/sec. The drives come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities.
