Yep, they will now get the faster SLC SSD...
" Eee PC 900-X the reason for the postponement of launch was the original specification, MLC type of flash memory with a 16 GB plan, but a last minute goal to improve performance, drive to start the 8 GB SLC, sub-8 GB drive "
So they will get fast 8GB SLC SSD + slow 8GB MLC SSD instead of one slow 16GB flash on their Eee PC 900-X
The difference is huge: 8GB SLC is 35/28 read/write where 16GB MLC is 30/8
