I have bought this one. But how to ensure that SSD is used by the system as cache. SSD has two partitions. Details as given by parted and gparted as below Model: ATA SanDisk SSD U100 (scsi) Disk /dev/sdb: 24.0GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: gpt Disk Flags:
Number Start End Size File system Name Flags Label 2 1049kB 4296MB 4295MB fat32 EFI system partition hidden INTELRST 1 4297MB 24.0GB 19.7GB HFS Any clues to know whether SSD is used by system. I have seen a reply by intel in similar situation as said in http://communities.intel.com/thread/34039 In this, it is said "SSD cache or acceleration does not work under AHCI. If you like to enable this feature the computer requires RAID mode. If your computer model does not support RAID then, SSD cache is not supported." In BIOS, only AHCI or IDE mode is available. Hence the doubt whether SSD cache is used or not?
Windows 8 Book. The VivoBook S400CA provides the ideal symbiosis for Windows 8: Conventional notebook and touchscreen combined. This allows traditional programs and apps in the tiled layout to both be used as they were intended. The question is whether this makes the VivoBook a well rounded off package?
