The SATA Mini 2 PCIe SSD is an upgrade module specifically designed to be a drop in replacement for the ASUS Eee PC S101, 900, 900A, and 901 netbook PCs. The modules are simple and easy to install for immediate capacity and performance benefits.

Much cheaper than anywhere I've come across online

am I being dumb, but cant you use a SDHC card for boot? or would that be way to slow

Got to love people who vote something cold because they don't understand what it is.

And yes, an SD card is too slow.

The problem with these ssd's is that they're really not good value when you compare it to the chassis it's going in. I wanted to upgrade my Eee 701 and my Eee 900, and my Mini 9, but as they cost like £150 each, and I managed to get a Mini 10 with a 250gb hd for £160 .... it really wasn't worth it.

i think the mini 9 (which i have) has similar hardware to many netbooks such as the Eee, and you can't boot from the card reader as it's not setup as a standard bootable usb device, which is a shame as then you could put one OS on the internal drive and another on an SDHC card (or have multiple cards with multiple OS's). you can only use them for storage, although with osx you might be able to put apps on too

i suppose the comparison of £69 to upgrade compared to a new mini 10 for £160 is a good one, but i don't think it's that common or easy to get that good a price. my mini 9 was only £99 in the classic dell price error of a year or two ago. it would be nice to upgrade the HD, but maybe £70 is a bit steep. give a few months and i'm sure the price will drop to about half that, and then i might be more interested

32g seems a bit too small...

In netbook terms I don't think so, its not powerful enough to run juicy, demanding programs so that limits the kind of programs you stick on it. my eee 901 was bottlenecked by the ssd, with the new ssd its bottle necked by the processor ... now its good enough to run 7, with all the fancy crap take off.
