With a netbook, is RAID 0ing the internal SSD and an SD card a good idea? Answered

I've just gotten a netbook with an 8gb SSD, and it has a built-in SD card slot.
If I put an 8gb class 10 SD card into the slot, would I be able to RAID 0 them?
What would happen if I RAID 0ed them and then took the SD card out while it was on? Would it erase everything or would it just shut down?

Would this work?

I need 16gb of internal storage, and a 16gb SSD drive is over 70% the price of the netbook....

I'm thinking either Hackintosh or Peppermint OS or Windows XP as the operating system.

Any other comments?

no it wouldn't. an ssd is much higher bandwidth than even a class 10 sd card and they are very different. One is connected though a sata port, the other is connected through who knows what.
