SSD too

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Archos has updated its Archos 9 Windows 7 tablet with a faster Intel Atom CPU - 1.2GHz this time, up from 1.1GHz - and a 32GB SSD in place of the previous model's HDD.

The gadget runs Windows 7 Starter - the netbook-centric version of the OS. The display is netbook-like too: it's 8.9in with a 1024 x 600 resolution.
