Asus Eee PC 900 internals, retail version

Thanks Floppy at VR-Zone

Asus Eee PC 900 to have 2 seperate SSDs

This doesn't sound good..

Click here to see more

There is 4GB soldered to motherboard and 8GB / 16GB on pcie slot. 8GB for xp and 16GB on Linux versions.

The 4GB part is the master so OS is installed on that...
..I'd rather get only 8GB / 16GB than 4GB for os and separate for files...

This will make problems for non tech users..

Let's see where this is going.. and hope there is something good on this setup.

UPDATE: looks like the 4GB internal SSD has been upgraded to 40MB/s !
