Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today announced the immediate availability of the Crucial m4 mSATA Solid State Drive (SSD), designed primarily to address the rapidly emerging Ultrabook category and deliver powerful, proven performance for systems where space is at a premium.

The Crucial m4 mSATA SSD delivers the award-winning performance and reliability of the Crucial m4 SSD in a drive one eighth the size. Because of its tiny mSATA form factor, the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD can be mounted to an mSATA-enabled motherboard to serve as a primary storage in ultrathin laptops or act as a cache to complement the performance of an existing hard drive. Available in 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB capacities with MSRPs of $52.99, $80.99, $121.99, and $225.99, respectively, the Crucial m4 mSATA SSD can be purchased now through select global channel partners, or directly at www.crucial.com.

Awesome. It's a damn shame Asus, Apple and others have resorted to modifying standard mPCI SSD's and made their own proprietary, non-standard SSD formats. :shadedshu This reminds me back in the days when Dell used their own proprietary PSU's with non-standard connectors in their desktops. An absolute hell to work it, to say the least!

There's a reason why standards exist, and it pisses me off that we're going backwards in the case of Ultrabook SSD's. :mad:
