I tried a Crucial M500 240G mSATA in a net6501-70. But it had a weird
behaviour - on a cold boot it was fine, but the BIOS did not seem to see
it after a warm reset. Either doing a reboot in the OS, or using the
front panel reset button, left it unable to see the drive to boot from.
However a physical power cycle always booted OK.

YMMV of course :) It may have been just that drive unit (we only tried one)

We ended up just sticking to Intel 525's and have had no problems with
them since.
