"The Samsung NC10 netbook we were using for our HDD vs.
SSD testing has an Intel Atom N270 processor, 945GME motherboard,
1GB of DDR2 memory, and has a 10" 1024 x 600 display. The Samsung
NC10 lacks a model sporting a solid-state disk, but by default it's
using a 160GB Fujitsu MHZ2160BH G2 HDD. The Fujitsu 2.5" SATA HDD
operates at 5400RPM and has an 8MB cache.
"The SSD we installed into the Samsung NC10 for testing was an
OCZ Core Series V2 OCZSSD2-2C30G. The OCZSSD2-2C30G has a 30GB
capacity, Serial ATA 2.0 interface, sequential read rates up to
170MB/s, and sequential write rates up to 98MB/s. The maximum shock
resistance is 1500G and there is a 1.5 million hours MTBF. This
product is additionally backed by a two-year OCZ warranty."
