Are these new? Looks like a HOT price.

Mine arrived in a brown box, no Dell branding on the box.
It looks new, not a mark on the netbook itself or accessories.

Yeh £108 + delivery
Code gives £4.50 off (5%)

screen 8.9" (thought it was 10" first).

Still a good price. You can install W7 from USB also.

If it wasn't the flash memory 8GB version I'd consider this, even though I don't need it. Spose you can't be too picky at this price!

I plan on adding a 16GB SD Card for docs etc.

Primarily it is for internet, and reading whilst on train.

I suppose this would be good for those with very little budget.

Perhaps good for hacking/testing attempts, i.e. those dodgy buggers who get out of paying for Windows 7!

coming up as £90 for me?

cheap for a knock about netbook.... can you upgrade the RAM in these to 2GB?

* IGNORE ME * - a quick Google has shown that you can - max ram 2GB (only 1 RAM slot so will have to replace existing RAM module).

Having read online you can replace the 1Gb DIMM with a 2Gb DIMM.

tempted for son. what is ubuntu like compared to Windows? Could you purchased windows seperately to install if so how much is this normally?

ahhh sorry, cracking price tho! Thought maybe they reduced them again, any idea how hard it is to install an operating system onto them? I have no idea about netbooks

If you use ubuntu you'll not need to ugprade either the ram or hard disk.

If you use windows, you'll have to upgade both.

I've downloaded ubuntu via ubuntu.com/net…oad
Followed the USB installation guide, and had it up and running in 30mins.

You could purchase windows separately, but you will struggle installing it on the 8Gb SSD, especially with additional apps.

I am tempted to play with Chrome on it...

I think these use the Intel GMA 950 chipset. If so, you could always create a hackintosh. I'm fairly sure that the wifi cards are supported too. Have a read through the following forum: mydellmini.com/for…-x/.

does anyone know if you can put osx on it?

But of a faf in 8 gig flash, but possible.

This notebook with the current spec will struggle to run windows at a decent speed.

I suggest installing one of the following:
/Jolicloud
Ubuntu Netbook

is the hard drive in this an SSD that uses a mini pci like an e901? and not able to hold a proper hard drive? by proper i mean 2.5 lappy drive
Edited by: "thestepster" 7th Feb 2011

I have one of these. Both xp and windows 7 install and run fine. Boot time is less than 30 seconds. Tis a bit of a squeeze to put windows 7 on so I would recommend sticking with XP if you are going down the microsoft route. Excellent price, I'm tempted to get a spare.

That is correct. It will not take a regular 2.5" HDD

bs hdd, bs ram and bs deal altogether. For these reason I vote super cold.

Numpty.........as a netbook, running ubuntu netbook ed, surfing the web, communicating, music, maybe some movie playback it's perfect - loads up in seconds and the screen looks beautiful with ubuntu - as nice as a mac os, seriously pretty. Don't think it'll run crysis, that's not what it's for but for this money you'll LOVE IT. U can get osx running on it but I've never been bothered with all the faffing. Mine has wireless broadband card in it -works like a dream.

look at comment #2 there is a chance you may not be able to find it even if you look (ofc there is a chance you will)
sounds like dell outlets units which state the same but the buyers often post they couldn't see anything

I have one of these and they're great. Upgraded the memory to 2gb, running ubuntu with about 4-5gb free. Recommend getting an SDHC card for it to store *any* form of media / downloads.

Battery life is about 2-3 hours now. Keyboard a tiny bit small...you wont be able to touch type but you can still peck the keys.

Thanks

ordered this now and am looking forward to using ubuntu netbook on it. any idea if i can install android on it

if I put ubuntu on this, does it have drivers for the 3G dongles you get with most mobile broadband packages?

If you want to install Windows 7 you will need a 32GB SSD like this:

amazon.co.uk/Sup…8-3

I've been using the 16gig version for about a year now. It's very nice and truly portable. Weighs almost nothing. But if you plan to use it a lot, the SSD will fill up pretty quickly. Which is a right pain in the **** because you've got to keep backing everything up to an external hard-drive/memory card and your documents will be spread all over the place, which will have you crying "why-oh-why didn't I get the larger-capacity HDD version?!?!" (or something to that effect)

Also, the keyboard takes a bit of getting used to (especially the tiny right-shift key - grrrrrr) but you can re-arrange and re-map the keys pretty easily (there's a guide on mydellmini)

It can run most applications pretty well (and some simple games - e.g. World of Goo), but will struggle to run more demanding programs (mine really hated Skype, which was annoying)

I have a Acer Timeline laptop now so I don't use the Mini 9 that much. I'm still very fond of it, though.

Seems like it gone out of stock now.

sold out now

Will you be able to get on the internet to download ubuntu if it does not have an os ?

Sorry, I have no idea how these things work.
