Thankfully, Active Media has a new line of upgrade SSDs that are compatible with the Eee S101, 900, 900A, 901, and 1000 Eee netbooks. The SSDs use a mini PCIe card form factor and the 3Gbps SATA-II interface.

The SaberTooth S4 SSDs use MLC NAND flash for performance and reliability. ECC error correction is built in and the SSDs have a wear leveling algorithm to prolong their life. The sequential write speed is up to 50MB/sec and sequential read is up to 130MB/sec. The drives come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities.
