Default New Runcore Pro IV - 05-14-2009, 02:35 AM

I know that the new Runcore Pro IV is compatible with the dell mini 10, but is it compatible with the mini 9?

If the new Pro IV isn't compatible, is there a stat verison of runcore ssd that is compatible? the pata hardly seems worth it.

Thanks for all replies,

Different connectors between the two models: PCI-e for the mini 9 and PATA for the 10.

If the mini 9 is pci-e, will any of the pci-e ssd's be compatible, like the 70 mm sata from runcore? Just seems like a waste if the mini 9 is only compatible with the pata version, which has low read/write times compared to the sata.

The 70mm won't fit unless you do some case modifications. It will work if you can get it in there. However, there's no practical difference between PATA and SATA in this regard.

We cannot use sata drives, only pata. It has been tried several times, and without one success. Our Mini's are crippled, unlike the eee which can use both.
