Good news first?
The 8GB SSD is one pci-e card. ( not split in 2 )
It uses faster SLC flash, made by samsung, so you could expect similar speeds as 900/901 internal 4GB SSD has.
It uses different batteries than any other Eee PC ( different connector ) and they are cheapo 4400mAh ones.
This means you can't use your old batteries from 701 or 900. And you can't buy bigger or better ones yet.
Shitty! Well, first mod from me might be a battery mod...
UPDATE: you can take away the good news... there is only bad news
