Or try RunCore SSDs...
If you want more speed then look for RunCore SSD upgrades for the EEE and Mini9... much better than these Crucial units...

I agree with the first poster. I bought a RunCore pro card for my Eee 900 - its now a serious computer - I'm getting 120Mb read and 80Mb write speeds from it... OK, it was quite a bit more pricey than this crucial unit, but well worth the extra dosh.

For Dell Mini 9
Crucial 64gb 40 Mb/s Read 15 Mb/s Write - Approx £140
Runcore 64Gb 78 Mb/s Read 44 Mb/s Write - Approx £190
Double - triple the performance for 50 quid more is a no brainer. If you cant afford the 64Gb run core the 32GB is only £100-ish
