128GB Solid state drive removed

The drive transmits data through a normal SATA connector. Impressively, the specs listed on the drive indicate a maximum power consumption of only 1.05 watts and an operating shock of 1500G!
The solid state drive's thickest point is the 4mm SATA connector. The rest of the drive is a scant 2.9 mm.
