Intelligent flash storage arrays

Our standard set of benchmark test proved no problem for the U115 - it breezed through PCMark05. It put in a very good CPU performance, coming in just between the best N270-based netbook and those fitted with the faster N280. It was a little bit slower on memory performance but its hard drive score more than made up for it. It was second only to the astonishingly fast Asus Eee S101 and still a fair way ahead of the rest of the pack in the hard disk test.
