Super Talent Launches SSDs for Asus Eee PCs

Up to 64GB Mini PCI-Express Cards Give Eee PC Users New Upgrade Options


San Jose, California – October 7, 2008 – Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced a new line of mini PCI-Express SSDs, available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, that were designed explicitly for the Asus Eee PC.




Standard Eee PCs have maximum 20GB of storage. These cost-effective upgrade cards offer up to 64GB of solid state storage. Super Talent’s Mini PCIe cards have been tested extensively with Asus Eee PCs to ensure performance and compatibility.



Super Talent Director of Marketing, Joe James mentioned, “It’s a natural extension of our SSD product range to offer SSDs for popular netbook brands. Solid state storage is ideal for entry level mobile PCs”. These mini PCIe SSDs are sampling now, and will be in mass production in November.

20GB of PCIe SSD, + a normal 40GB SSD drive, eh?

I like the price on these, but I'm not sure I would be willing to spend $150 upgrading (less than doubling the memory of) a PC I only spent $500 on recently.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

well, they gotta start somewhere. Personally, i like this idea of SSD's and when i get my next computer i plan to have one in it for things like the OS and frequently used programs.

but like 3vi1 said, maybe spending $150 on a $500 pc isnt a great idea.

If I get a EEE it will be to sit back in my living room and surf the web. I don't know if I would need more HD space. On the other hand the tinkerer in me says this is really cool.Hmm
