New Super Talent SSDs cater to Eee PC S101


— 11:53 AM on January 28, 2009

Asus' $650 Eee PC S101 may be thinner, lighter, and prettier than more affordable members of the Eee PC line, but it actually has less storage capacity—just 16GB for the Windows model. Thanks to Super Talent, though, you'll soon be able to spend even more to get reasonable amounts of storage in your sleek, upscale netbook.

The memory firm has introduced three solid-state drives that cater exclusively to the Eee PC S101. These SSDs have capacities of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB, and they all have maximum performance ratings of 90MB/s for reads and 55MB/s for writes. All three drives connect to the S101 via Serial ATA interfaces, as well.

According to Super Talent, the three SSDs are shipping now. The company only mentions pricing for the 64GB variant, which it says "will retail for approximately $169"—enough to bump the total price of an S101 to a hefty $819.
