If you own a Windows-based Asus S101 Eee PC and are running out of storage space, there's now another choice of upgrade.

Super Talent Technology (STT) announced Wednesday that it now offers a new solid-state drive (SSD) for the Netbook with capacities up to 64GB.

While 64GB doesn't sound a lot compared to hundreds of gigabytes found in new laptops or desktops, that's a lot for a Netbook. The Windows model of the S101 originally comes with only 16GB.

According to STT, the new SSD features a SATA Mini PCIe interface and delivers up to 90 MB/sec max sequential read speeds and up to 55 MB/sec write speeds.

The company says the new SSD has been rigorously tested both in performance and functionality to ensure it's compatible with the Asus S101. The drive is available immediately and costs $169 for the 64GB version. It also comes in 32GB and 16GB versions, which are priced accordingly.
