AVADirect Now Offering Mini-SSDs in Notebooks
AVADirect is now offering mini-SATA (mSATA) SSDs in select notebook computers. The benefit of these drives is that they do not take up the main drive bay; users could ideally use the mini-SSD as a boot drive and have a large hard drive in the primary bay for storage.
The mini-SSDs offer up to 220MB/s read and write. Capacities range from 30GB to 128GB; available brands include Intel, My Digital SSD, and A-DATA. Current pricing ranges from $51-$191.
