    1TB mSATA SSD? If the prices reflect similarly to the 2.5" 840 EVO drives then that sounds tasty.

    I got a bad feeling these are going to be grossly over-$$$. I hope not, my 17R SE would love to eat one of these! :pimp:

    Needs more M.2/NGFF. And X99 motherboards with two slots.

    Too bad Samsung's XP941s are only available to integrators.

    Speaking of M.2/NGFF, is it restricted to SATA 3 speeds? Looking at those benches it looks like SSDs have hit the limit.

    When I bought 2 laptops few months ago, I avoided ones with NGFF for this reason. Not many are giving a damn about the NGFF.

    Yeah, so far it seems as though it is still too new. Same as how USB 3 and PCI-e 3 took forever to get official support from Intel. And don't get me started on Thunderbolt.

    I need tech to be adopted faster, not slower. :[

    Yeah, I'd really like one of these Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD units to upgrade my aging but still reasonably fast Asus Eee Slate EP121 Core i5 Tablet PC. The OEM mSATA SSD was a 64GB Sandisk. I would really like to put in a 250GB or 500GB mSATA SSD. 1TB would be the dream but that would cost way more then the tablet is even worth.

    It was about ~$1100 when it first came out but its worth about ~$550 or so now used / refurbished.
