Netbook Hard Drive Size? 1.6" or 2.5"?

Stopped by circuit city's closing sale yesterday and got really tempted to buy a new netbook. They all come with either 80gb 120gb or 160gb. Any way to upgrade that? and also, the SSD ones that have 16gb or whatever, is that on a pci-e chip like the older gen asus eeepc or is it in like a sata slot like the 80gb ones? and how easy is it to upgrade the memory from 1gb to max?

There's some sort of agreement where MS won't sell the manufacturers the XP netbook edition (ULCPC - ultra low consumption PC, I think) if they stick more than 1GB of ram in there. As for why there aren't half terrabyte drives in there? It's a netbook....
