Default STEC SSD mPCIe - 10-28-2008, 08:25 PM

Has anyone found a place to buy STEC's 32bg ssd? They make mention of it on their website but I have had no luck finding a place to purchase it. I sent and email and called the sales department at STEC and am waiting to hear back from them. I just thought I would ask out here on the forums as well. I read and article that stated STEC was offering these drives at roughly $2 a gigabyte (u.s.) so that would put this high performing ssd at under $70! I am sold if this is true. Having said that, any of you that have the 32gb drive from MyDigitalSSD, have you benchmarked it against the STEC 16gb that comes stock? If so can you post your results?

I spoke with them on 10/24 and they said the components for the Dell Mini 9 were built custom for Dell and are not sold anywhere else. They also said that the 32GB one the sell on their site would not work with the Mini 9.
