    Originally ASUS' Eee PC 900/901 netbooks are limited to a maximum of 20GB onboard SSD storage and possibly a bit more if you add an additional storage card or extra USB flash memory. While it may be enough for some, it's unacceptable for others. For that reason, Japanese firm Buffalo has teamed up with various SSD suppliers to offer special Eee PC storage bundles that include more capacity for a little extra cash. Soon Buffalo will start offering two HDD upgrade kits for Eee PC 900/901 series, a 32GB SHD-EP9M32G and a 64GB SHD-EP9M64G models, that will make the netbook more flexible. Buffalo forecasts the two replacement drives to become available sometime in September with the 32GB model priced at ¥14,800 (US $136) and the 64GB model priced at ¥29,800 (US $275).

    if u think about it - this card can fit in other laptops also providing they have space since it has what appears to be the mini PCI-E card connection - the same ones on your internal wifi card(laptops only)

    so you could buy this & run it in your non Eee PC laptop

    Hmmm, your right Eclipse, that does look like a PCI-E slot. Keep this up and laptops can finally get even with desktops lol.
