More on the netbook for shack use

One more thing I realized last night is that a SSD-based netbook is extremely quiet. It emits no hiss whatsoever, I doubt it has a cooling fan either. Disk capacity is limited to the size of the onboard card + any SD card you add (4-8-16-32 GB), but it poses no real problem if used for logging and digital modes terminal.

Just remember solid state disks (SSD) have a limited amount of read-write cycles, so backup often your data!

Does anyone know of RFI problems to SSD?
