Super Talent's new drives are available in two forms, the standard Half Mini PCIe form factor and Super Talent's innovative Double Wid Half Mini PCIe form factor. Both feature the Dell Mini 9's cusomt IDE interfaces to ensure that the drives are simply plug and play.


The new drives are available in sizes ranging from 16GB in size up to 128GB, reaching speeds of up to 80MB/s. The drives are available immediately and will cost between US$74.99 and US$379.99.


"For the first time ever Mini 9 users can upgrade their netbooks with a high performance 128GB SSD without any case modifications. We installed the hardware in less than 60 seconds and reinstalled the operating system in less than 30 minutes. We started thinking about how we could better solve our customers' problems, when we saw them posting videos online sawing their case apart to put in larger SSDs. So we innovated and invented the Double Wide Half Mini PCIe form factor to make upgrading to a high capacity SSD a whole lot easier."
