If I were to buy this SSD from Newegg.com, would it work on the Mini 9?

That is for the Eee PC, and is too big for the Mini 9. (I know because I already asked that a while back ) As far as I know, one of the only places that have SSD specifically made for the Mini (currently) is MyDigitalDiscount.

The Eee uses "full mini PCI-e" while the Mini9 uses "half mini PCI-e".. And apparently there are some minor pinout differences between the two machines, so even if you cut the case out of the way to get it in, there's a good chance it wouldn't work.


Tired of wondering if your Mini9 is doing ANYTHING? - Add a HDD Activity LED
