now available with 64GB or 32GB solid state drives

OQO is now offering a 1.8-inch 64GB or 32GB solid state drive (SSD) on OQO model e2 computers. Unlike hard disk drives with spinning platters and mechanical heads, a solid state drive is based on NAND flash memory with no moving parts. The SSD has a high operating shock tolerance of up to 1,500 G's, making it ideal for users in tough and extreme environments. In addition, model e2 computers with solid state drives exhibit better performance and faster boot times.

improved thermal management

For optimized cooling within the compact and dense form factor of the model e2, OQO has designed an advanced thermal management system that provides >2X improvement in cooling effectiveness over its predecessor, the model 01+. The model e2 thermal management system includes a heatpipe, a cooling fan, and multiple air vents. The heatpipe extracts and transfers heat from the CPU to the air vents where the cooling fan blows air out of the chassis. The speed of the cooling fan dynamically adjusts based on internal computer temperature and can also be overriden by the user through the OQO manager software.
