Yes, ideally MiniXP or nlited version is as quick some say a little quicker

However the easiest way is to install via External CD Drive.

The Mini 9 comes with the Driver Disks for Windows but you will need to sort out the Os yourself, if you have a Dell already with XP you are laughing as you can use that restore disk.

It is plenty quick enough with XP - don't forget it has a Gig of ram which is still more than fine for running XP. The SSD disc reads very quick, mine boots to Windows in around 25 seconds.

Dell offered the Mini 9 four weeks ago for £99.00 (Pricing error, lasted for approx 45 mins, however orders were honoured) should have been ~ £240.00

Please don't mislead by comparing chalk and cheese - this is a solid-state disk whereas the other one has a hard disk. This is quieter and more robust. If you want to compare power consumption and speed then do some research.

Oh that old chestnut again - I would like to hear exactly what you mean - a "Dell" badge on the front does not mean it's better put together.
Bluetooth
Ubuntu OS
Ubuntu isn't necessarily better - they're both flavours of Linux. You can put Ubuntu on the AA1 if you like, and you can easily enable a lot of stuff that's already there. It all depends what you want to do with it of course.
Speakers
The ones on the AA1 are pretty tinny.

One thing I think is worth mentioning - this machine has no fan so is truly silent. But I don't know how hot it gets as a result - is it uncomfortable to use on the lap?

Another thing that should be mentioned is the very strange function key arrangement on the Dell - it doesn't have function keys; they are shared with other keys and I believe F11 and F12 don't exist at all. This has baffled a lot of reviewers but I don't know how much of a problem it is in pratice.

Was that a question or a statement? :?

Of course there's a big "gap" - but if you don't want to fill your computer with lots of music and videos then you will have a very hard time trying to fill 8GB - i.e. 120GB is unlikely to be missed. And you can shove a cheap SD card into the slot provided for secondary solid-state storage.

It just needs to be pointed out that there is more to it than "that one has 120GB and this has 8GB".

far far too small in my opinion, ul end up squinting to look at a lot the stuff on screen. bear in mind most stores setup laptops/netbooks around head height so we can look at it clearly, but in reality you would put ur laptop on u lap (further away than you see in store). my freind bought one at the £97 deal ( i missed out), for £97 i would have beared with it but at this price a definate no no!

personally i went for the 13.3" widescreen with DVD, 3GB Ram, dual core medion laptop yesterday for around £216

If you're long sighted you may have a problem; if not this size screen works very well and I don't have problems using it for long periods.

I bought the AAO three months ago and have to say, was very disappointed with the finish, the paint either side of the T Pad started to wear away and the bezel around the top of screen was narrower on the left as apposed to the right. Regards the battery, M9 ships with a 4 cell giving over 4 hrs of general use, was lucky to get 2 hrs from the AAO. Having said that, saw AAO in Comet today for £150.00 (base mod) which is an excellent price and well worth considering over the Dell.

Why bother posting if you don't understand the appeal of a netbook form factor? :?

All netbooks allow you to use SD cards and USB thumbsticks. I can't understand how you could possibly not be able to store everything you need on the road. Unless you expect to take your entire library of 100s of ripped DVDs with you on the road, but since the battery on most netbooks can barely get you through one movie I don't see why you would have your entire library on there. :thumbsup:

Netbooks are for basic computing stuff. You don't need 120gbs.
