    More importantly, I want to know if x120e support mSata card. Most likely it is going to be no. I wonder if anybody has try it yet.

    Check out the Engaget thread on the x120e. Someone already tried the new intel 310 msata (soda creek I believe) drives in the x120e and it didn't work. Too bad, I was holding off on buying an ssd for exactly that reason. I finally went with a 120gb intel. I got burned by OCZ earlier this year with the 25nm fiasco so be careful which drive you buy.

    on second thought...maybe it was a thread on slickdeals discussing msata and the x120e. Regardless, it didn't work.
    The notebook stable currently consists of a slew of Dell's; e6410, D630, D620, D430, an Asus 1005HA, and the new Thinkpad x120e

    Default SATA 3gb/s or 6gb/s for x120e

    Got my x120e. I love the machine.

    Is the SATA interface II or III?

    And more importantly can the machine use the 6gb/s interface?

    Has anyone tried a vertex III on this machine.

    I realise that might be ridiculous given that the machine isnt worth that much, just wondering though.

    I don't think the x120e would have SATA 3, but somebody correct me if I'm wrong. If it doesn't support SATA 3 then it will not utilize 6 Gb/s.

    The Vertex 3 series isn't even out yet.

    Most SSD don't even come close to saturating SATA 2 levels, only the 510 series from Intel, C300 and Vertex 3 will surpass it IF you have a SATA 3 connector.

    Default Re: SATA 3gb/s or 6gb/s for x120e

    And then there is the question of power consumption on the x120e. how much power do SATA 3 SSDs utilise?

    They have pretty powerful ARM processors for controllers, so the power usage must be at least 1w on idle, which is in the range of regular HDDs.

    It really depends on which SSD you are talking about and the notebook. If it already comes with a 5400 rpm drive it will most likely have the same battery life.

    Someone on the Slickdeals forum tried it, and reported that it did not work. I do not recall the model though ~ it was a 40GB msata by Intel.

    Not necessarily. Most SSDs, especially Intel and Samsung ones, have idle power consumption significantly lower than 1W. You can look at some of the benchmarks at StorageReview to get a general idea. As a whole, SSDs have lower power consumption than HDDs, but there are definitely exceptions to that rule.

    What does Hudson look like? I don't have a sexy chip shot with a quarter for reference, but AMD's spec sheet paints a pretty good picture. The Hudson FCH is built on a 65-nm fab process and has a 23 x 23-mm, 605-ball BGA package—slightly larger than the APU it accompanies. Power consumption ranges from 2.7W to 4.7W for "typical configurations." Inside Hudson lurk the four PCIe Gen1 lanes required for the UMI interface, an extra four PCIe Gen2 lanes, six 6Gbps Serial ATA connections, 14 USB 2.0 connections, and built-in fan control logic.

    I'd like to bump this, can I know if the X120e will support SATA III? Thanks
