There seems to be a new solid-state drive (SSD) netbook upgrade from a different manufacturer every few weeks. This time round, Active Media has announced its SaberTooth SSD upgrade for the Asus Eee PC. This SSD is tested to work with the Asus Eee PC 900, 900A and 901 and S101 models and should just fit into the Mini PCI-E card slot.
There are two different lines depending on the performance you after. The SaberTooth S has maximum read and write speeds of 90 and 55 MBps respectively and comes in capacities of 16GB ($62.95) and 32GB ($96.95). The faster SaberTooth SS has faster read and write speeds of 155 and 100MBps respectively. This line comes in 16GB ($82.95), 32GB ($124.95) as well as 64GB ($219.95) storage.
