HDD on Eee 900 didn't sound that good first, but...

HDD fits ontop of the adapter and RAM module

Fitting CF adaptor to my 900.. looks very possible..
Now that I know how Asus is doing it, it sounds actually better.
They are using a PCI-E to ZIF adapter for the HDD. This means that it would be really easy to upgrade it with 1.8 inch SSD or CF adapter.. both good choices for speed and durability.
Even more, this kind of adapter could be used on the "original" Eee PC 900 too..
Should I do it?.. Should I make the adapter available?..
