Exclamation SSD upgrade 32 or stragen shape 64? - 08-13-2009, 05:08 PM

I am trying to decide between the 32 and the 64 version of this.
The 32 looks to have the connectors at the end as the stock one does.
The 64 has it on the side. Does this fit properly? Says it is for the mini 9.
Does a bluetooth module need to be removed to make room or something?

Assistance/expertise appreciated.
64 Gig version: - SUPER TALENT Double Wide FDM64GFDL Half Mini PCIe 64GB Mini PCIe (PATA) MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Solid State Disks
32 gig version: - SUPER TALENT FEM32GFDL Half Mini PCIe 32GB Mini PCIe (PATA) MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Solid State Disks

See the difference on the placement of the connectors?

Thanks for the help. I am waiting to order for this to be ansered.

The 64 doublewide will fit your mini 9, as long as you don't have WWAN installed.

If you look at the photo, opposite the connecters, you will see the 2 holes for the mounting screws.

The excess part fits down where there is space in most Mini 9's because there is no WWAN soldered to the motherboard.
