How fast is it though? Fast enough, or will the r/w/access times make everything slow? Not all SSD is created equal.
There's a "new" SD format too - up to 2TB.... Prolly within a couple years, or maybe someone will get some federal stimulus funds and manufacture it sooner! After all, it could help us solve the "Climate Change" issue, that's always a good way to get money.... -----Original Message----- From: owner-freebsd-questi...@freebsd.org [mailto:owner-freebsd-questi...@freebsd.org] On Behalf Of Gary Kline Sent: Monday, June 22, 2009 6:08 PM To: FreeBSD Mailing List Subject: you're not going to believe this. you guys aren't going to believe what i just found on the web for the ASUS Eee-901 [or is it the "900"]. it was for the 9- and 10-inch screens. i was using konq which just segv'd so i am taking a break and thought i'd share this. last night, i could barely believe the ten-inch with a 40GB SSD. these mini-notebooks take two memory chips. they just plug in. i was googling around and found they have 32's and even 128's. so you can get 64 or up to 256Gigs of solid state disk ... not in a year or two (or five or six), but now. i'll double and triple check to make sure this isn't a sham, but they had a thing on you-tube... Oh, and next time i see the speech therapist, i'll lug my hugmongous thinkpad and demo what i've done with my scripts and flite.... 8 kilobux for a Doze speech dev my butt. with berkeley unix and open source tools, you can have it for a few hundred bux. gary -- Gary Kline kl...@thought.org http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org For FBSD list: http://transfinite.thought.org/slicejourney.php The 4.98a release of Jottings: http://jottings.thought.org/index.php _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" <font size="1"> <div style='border:none;border-bottom:double windowtext 2.25pt;padding:0in 0in 1.0pt 0in'> </div> "This email is intended to be reviewed by only the intended recipient and may contain information that is privileged and/or confidential.
