RunCore’s new line of SSDs is now shipping, and the drives are priced very competitively. They’re available in 16, 32, 64, and 128gb capacities and should retail at $69, $119, $199, and $389. Price/performance ratio is good, with read/write speeds on the drives at about 75/40 mb/s.

One slick addition is the onboard USB slave port which should make the process of cloning a netbook’s original drive a fairly painless procedure.

At the opposite end of the spectrum is RunCore’s 256gb 2.5″ SATA SSD, which boasts peak read/write speeds of 230/150 mb/s, respectively. They’ll be priced at $699 – not bad considering the size and performance, but still quite a leap from the 1.8″ pricing.

Still, this should be a sign of good things to come for netbook users looking to upgrade to an SSD.
