First, The Dell Mini 12 has a 1.8" PATA SSD, not a 2.5" SATA drive.
Second, availability of 1.8" PATA SSDs have been very limited until recently.

Its still just a matter of ponying up the dough.
Wonder what this upgrade does to battery life? Should increase it, I'd think. The Mini-12 with 1gb ram is great with Ubuntu. Give it some stretch to its untethered life and it starts to turn into a real performer. Too bad it can't run OSX. Not that I care to install it, but the compatability would be marvelous.
