qualify to get a free windows 7 upgrade?



Interesting question, would like to know the answer!!

I think that's if you're buying a system with Vista, not XP ?
And, of course, as long as the distributor is taking part in the upgrade program.

I've corrected this for you.

abaxas;5835779

I've corrected this for you.



I thought this netbook can handle windows 7?

For those wanting to put OS X on one of these, it's pretty much sorted other than the trackpad (quite problematic still) and webcam over iChat. Given the tremendous track record of those on the case, I'd expect resolution fairly soon. These have been turning up with a 1024x600 display but there's no guarantee of this.

and a further 5% off via Quidco :thumbsup:

That wasn't what i meant. He said it's a Downgrade rather than a Upgrade.

I wonder if he meant this mini dell can't handle Windows 7 so should be considered a downgrade from XP

How much does this unit weigh? Could it fit into a large ladies handbag? Also if it has no DVD drive how do you install anything onto it?

It's only systems sold with Vista that qualify for the upgrade problem, XP doesn't.

Not bad but the Samsung NC10 is better in many respects and will have a price reduction in August as they move to clearance. I'm waiting for that!
Nice one

Its for my wife, she is carting a large laptop around at present so if this could fit into her handbag it saves carrying two bags.
Can you purchase a external DVD drive or could you network programs via wireless outlet so that you put the program in the desktop and load it onto the mini laptop?

Very tempted to get a netbook after seeing some in John Lewis. Seems perfect for just leaving laying around for quick email checks and light browsing.

What would be considered the 'best' 10" Netbook around for £300 as it's all a bit confusing.

What is the difference between the processor on this, N270 and the Z520 on the similar looking spec on the tesco one?

just an idea people, i purchased a mini9 the other week: i declined the eula, and hence in it I am allowed to return winxp to dell for a refund. i am starting to go through this process. people have been successful in this process, but it can be long and hard

if you are planning to install osx on this, i'd recommend doing your research first as it isnt as cut and dried for the 10v apparantly

Samsung NC10 i would put my money on as being the best out there from what people have been saying and the reviews i have not got one yet waiting for the prices to fall but the nc10 is ment to be the daddy

Which is absolute nonsense btw. They probably were still going on about Windows 98 until a couple of years ago.

Windows 7 is a good O/S, definitely more usable than XP (which I also liked).

The wireless networking route also sounds possible - but what are you trying to install? :? Bear in mind that the processor will be slower than most current full laptops, so that will affect how well large applications run.

As a MSDN subscriber I've been using Windows 7 on my M1330 and 2 Desktops since the Beta and now using the RC. It is much better than Vista and XP IMO.

I've not had one BSOD and everything has worked out of the box. One of the most impressive things is that you can use most of your hardware / software with Legacy drivers. The compatability mode works very well.

Windows 7 requires also requires a lower spec and is definately snappier.

I installed the trial W7 (called Release Candidate)on my 4 yr old Dimension last night and I'm very impressed. It all installed with no problems at all. In fact, I just left it running and when I came back it was all on apart from the name and country etc questions I needed to fill in.

It looks a lot like Vista with the menus etc but is apparently quicker. I have to say intial impressions were very much favourable.

For the record, I received no marketing for it - it was just free to try so why not. Worp worp etc blah blah.

Probably the Samesung NC10, although Asus also have some nice models out, namely the EeePC 1008HA and 1005HA. The 1005HA is a bit cheaper but has extremely impressive battery life (something like 10 hours I think), and it's not bulky like many of them are either.

You can either get a USB optical drive as mentioned already, or just look for guides on how to install things via a USB flash drive.

*sigh* - I use it 8-10 hours a day, 7 days a week, I think I can form an opinion. It's better. Stick with XP if you wish, i don't care

wish this had HDMI out

So Dell are selling the Windows version for less than the equivalent specification Ubuntu system. Dell do not appear to be serious about their Linux offerings. Even the optional software offered with the Linux system is for Windows.

I am not impressed Dell!

I know the NC10 is highly rated but two other options worth considering are Lenovo S10e and Toshiba NB205 (not yet available in UK).

I was under the impression that dell mini 10s came with HDMI out as standard??
