Crazy. Ditto too on having a Mini 9 with it not sticking out. I'm so not getting a 10/12

I never thought to use an SD card for storage (only has 16 gigs on the SSD :\), but now it seems like an incredibly good idea. And now useless.
The fact that it's a "feature" disappoints me. I see how it's trendy to have the SD card easily gripped and pulled out, but keeping the netbook as flush on the sides as possible is critical.

It's useful if you want to look at photos from a digital camera that uses an SD card. It's less useful as "semi-permanent" added storage, but all the models that have this mis-feature are available with reasonable-size hard disks.

You are right... I thought that too, would have loved to get this misfeature on my d430.. I guess I am one of the exceptions with Mini 10 to have chosen to get SSD (32 GB)

honestly, i think an external usb drive is a better solution depending on your application. Are you worried the card will break? you can get a usb card reader.

I was hoping to use the SDHC as expanded HD as I have only 32 GB SSD and not 160 GB HDD like most others...

There are some discussions about this. Apparently there is only so many times you can read from and write to a flash drive. Over time the information can become corrupted.

Also, it may not be all that fast.

I just dont know if the card will be the best solution depending on your application.
