The SSD PCI-e slot is wired differently than the other PCI-e slots, all of the pins labeled "unused" in the PCI-e spec are used for the actual IDE bus. Really screwy way to do things, but seems the other netbooks are doing it in a similar fashion.
As for speed, all of the drive sizes that Dell offers should be the same speed, the 8 and 16gb units benchmark the same. I don't think anyone here has gotten their hands on a 32gb STEC drive yet, but I expect it to simply have larger chips/more of them.

As far as SSD vs. SDHC performance is concerned, here's some benchmarks people have posted. Obviously the SSD is much faster than the SDHC card.
