If you're looking to buy a dell mini 9 netbook and don't mind having an 8gb ssd rather than a 16gb ssd this will work out 30 quid cheaper than getting it from dell. Don't forget to use quidco to lower the price a little more.

Still i think the Linux version is a better deal if you are buying for a computer noob.
I bought one for my 8 year old sister and she likes linux much better than xp.

funnily enough it seemed tesco had pulled off a coup in selling the mini 10 before dell themselves.

it turned out to be a hoax by tesco as it was the mini 9 that was delivered.
needless to say there were a lot of piste off people.

The only difference between this one and the £195 model is Windows XP? I don't think the extra £50 is worth it. Ordered the Linux version on Sunday and expecting delivery tomorow (woo!), I'm going to try and install Windows on there myself though I'm not too confident.

Bear in mind that you can get the ADVENT 4211 on dixons.co.uk at £253.81 - which has a 120GB HD and a 10 " Screen if you use the discount codes - NET5 & SALE 25.

This can run XP, Vista, Windows 7 , Linux and OSX !

To be honest the ADVENT is the better buy given they are all MSI Wind Clones - especially given the bigger HD. Yeah the Flash memory is a little more robust - but you would fill it quick.

which one of those has the sim card slot?

None of them I think.

Most if not all these netbooks that have an optional SIM card slot are sold exclusively by the mobile networks (for mobile broadband packages minus a USB modem).

I've ordered a Samsung NC10 (all about the 7hr battery :-D) from Dixons using the codes posted above, and the SIM slot version of that is only available with a contract.

However if you're the kind to tinker with these things, many have spare mini PCI-Express/USB ports internally, and there's plenty of documented hack-jobs on adding all sorts of things to these netbooks.

The advent 4213 has a sim card slot and is about £5 more than the 4211.

we finally settled on the asus eepc 1000h`s , wwell happy with them, and got them just before christmas for £272 delivered.

they may be netbooks, and you may want them portable, but i think 8 gig and 16 gig storage capacitys are not much use to most people.

i wouldnt be without mine now, and the specs on them for the money are brill. i get 4 to 5 hours plus on the battery.


it just seems a lot for what could be had, if you dont mind installing your own OS as well.

too pricey. the linux version is a better buy :thumbsup:

Last time i saw it was £279.99 on Dixons plus the code brings it down to £272.99

Quidco never tracks for me at Tesco so I wouldn't bank on that.

Not worth paying 50£ extra for windows in a netbook. Actually, even at the same price I'd go for the linux version: better security for browsing, no spyware, no trojans, no rubbish!

There is a good guide on [url]www.mydellmini.com/[/url] for XP install. You would also be better off nlite'ing it.

Where can you get a SIM version of the SC10?
