Asus Eee PC 901 internal 4GB SSD
Asus Eee PC 900 internal 4GB SSD
Asus Eee PC 901 8GB PCI-E SSD
Asus Eee PC 900 16GB PCI-E SSD
New Asus Eee PC 900 16G, 16GB PCI-E SSD
For comparison, this is the 30GB Toshiba MK3008GL HDD
So... 901 has a bit better write speed but slower read on the 4GB SSD.
8/16GB PCI-E SSD is the same as on Eee 900..
But.. The new cheaper Eee PC 900 16G is slow... super slow.
I have tested XP on my 900's 16GB SSD, and it was slow.
But this new one is horrible slow.
My advice: Don't buy the new Asus Eee 900 16G.
If you have bought it, return it.
Earlier tests: 4G vs 8G vs 900
