i saw this on another forum by a memeber "
I can confirm the mSATA is a different physical drive (mSATA), I was lucky enough to get one of 32gb. Now, this review states that the mSATA is NOT user-accessible, which is wrong. The mSATA is right next to the RAM memory slots. Looks pretty easy to replace, but I have no idea on compatibility with others mSATA drives.
The laptop comes with this mSATA unit as a cache using Smart Response Technology (SRT) in a RAID with the 500gb drive. It works pretty well.
What's interesting is that its possible to turn off the SDD cache SRT, leaving the mSATA drive as standalone to use it for boot. I already did this and it works wonderful. Worth thinking about upgrading the mSATA, the result will be a laptop with a faster and bigger SSD drive and a normal high capacity hard drive for storage, all in this small package. "
is this recommended to do or should i just forget bout it?
