There are many small notebooks out there that use tiny 1.8-inch PATA HDDs inside that owners might like to update. The catch is that the small HDDs that the machines use don't have a ton of upgrade options available. Active Media Products has added a new upgrade path for owners of the machines that is a line of fast SSDs.




The new line is called the SaberTooth ZF Turbo ZIF SSD and it is offered in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. All of the SSDs use the same thin 1.8-inch 5mm thick form factor. The drives use special power saving circuits that will help extend the battery life of the notebook the drive is used inside.


The drives use MLC NAND flash and have ECC for better reliability. They also use wear leveling algorithms and ship with the screwdriver and instructions needed for the install. The SSDs will fit a number of small and portable notebooks that are on the market including the original MacBook Air, Acer Aspire One, and machines from Dell, Asus, Samsung, Sony, and a lot more. Prices are $129.95 for 32GB, $189.95 for 64GB, and $349.95 for the 128GB SSD.
