Did you go for the stock editon £179 one or did you configure it with different SSD, colour etc?

you can get it for £157.79 , looks like spec is the same :-D

Woud these have a warranty? It seems to say limited warranty on the website. What does that mean?

That looks like it excludes VAT. It is £181.46 with VAT

Hmm, £229 normal price vs £201 for second hand, although it includes WinXP and Bluetooth.

Nah, not enough off to make it useful to me, particularly since I'd need to replace the 1GB memory and 8GB SSD anyway.

link not working for me web site not showing up

all of these appear to have gone, only the slightly more expensive ones left @ £224 (inc delivery and inc vat)

available at £181.46 again

Is there a code for free delivery?

Or is the price in the original post without delivery?

These must be the ones bought for £179 2 weeks ago, and then returned by people like me who weren't struck?

[FONT="Verdana"]Mmm...there is the potential but also people may have cancelled their respective orders after the Dell Mini 10 was released by them or down to other netbook deals on the go - I think its a good deal and I'm considering getting one for my girlfriend as a present, as she needs a netbook rather than the beast of a laptop she's got for taking into work.

Note that there are still a lot of them on the go at the Dell Outlet Store - saw at least thirty of them still showing there.

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:[/FONT]

how does this compare with that medion from sainsbury's that everyone went wild over?

The medion although has same processor has a proper hard disk drive which is usually bigger in capacity, this one only has 8GB, which I personally think is ridiculous, but there are benefits like lower power consumption, no moving parts etc, which might interest you...

The screen is also bigger as far as i know on the sainsbury deal which is 10".

personally, I'd rather buy one with a proper hdd with loads of space, I know you can extend using external hdd's or sd cards etc, which is just pain.

wait for a few better deals this year guys, loads of companies making netbooks and everyone wants to sell them to get some desperate money in this recession ridden economy.

having had a netbook for the last 8-9 months, if i had to choose a netbook this is what i will choose.. in order

bigger screen (although 10" is good enough 1024x600 is a pain, prefer 1024x800), maybe 11"/12" without making the whole case big though
better battery preferably something that can last longer than 5 hrs
better keyboard & trackpad, my wind has a tiny painful trackpad, keyboard is fine
proper hdd unless SSD become real cheap and you get a 80gb+ as standard
never had issues with the atom as I keep my netbook well tuned! don't mind dual core though!

hope this rambling helps someone... :thumbsup:

helped me mate, so much appreciated!

eventually i will need to get a 2nd laptop, and these notebooks seem to do the trick....

I want something that will wirelessly connect to the internet, have a decent hard drive and have a copy of windows (xp or vista) pre-loaded, as i here not all of the come with windows and some have linux (which i've never used) is that correct?

The notebooks seem to be between £200-£250 witht the odd deal like the medion and the one posted here coming in under £200. How likely is it that these notebooks will fall too the £150-£200 mark, and will they go even lower?

for example is this a good deal, or is it worth waiting for a better deal?:
hotukdeals.com/ite…dd/

Do you think its best to wait for a good deal, or snap one up now? Im in no rush but will be looking to purchase one in the next few months. Finally my acer laptop, picks up the internet wirelessly and seems very powerful and can even pick up networks from other houses in the neighbourhood, does this depend on the laptop/manufacturer? or will every notebook and laptop have the same capability and strength?



Sorry for all the questions! and thanks for the help.....

If you can wait, sooner or later a good deal should come up.

The HP you linked uses a VIA processor which is much slower. Everything else about it is pretty good, so it's for people who do a lot of typing and only erver do one thing at a time.

andemg's list is pretty good, but if you want something that does it all, you'll have to spend about £300 on a Samsung NC10. The cheaper deals involve compromises.

Linux is pretty easy to use nowadays, but it's different and that frightens many people off.

The ones on outlet show as being 1.66Ghz on the processor and 800Mhz on the memory as opposed to 1.60Ghz and 533Mhz. respectively. According to Wiki this is an update to the processor for the first half of 2009, so can any one confirm this. Are the Outlet units quicker that the deal being offered by Dell for today?

Ah, just read a review on the Mini 9 where it says the memory is actually 800Mhz underclocked to 533MHz. Now to find out if the outlet ones have the faster processor.

Are these supplied in new condition too. I.e. not scratched?

Review I read where it mentions the memory is here:
notebookreview.com/def…578

This deal has now expired. £100 discount offer is over and has been replaced by a £55 discount making the cheapest machine £214.65 + Delivery (£19 i think) which is more expensive than getting it new from the main dell site! :thinking:
anyway, I have been researching these little machines to buy one, to answer a few of your questions:

dcx_badass

Ready to go for this, but do they not make one with a real hard drive?


Short answer is no, it only takes SSD drives BUT you can upgrade it to 16Gb, 32Gb or 64Gb. Also if you pay a bit more and get a Runcore drive its much faster. Apprently though without changing drives macosx boots faster on the dell 9mini than a macbook air! It also has an SD slot which you can put in a SDHC 16gb card for more storage? (I intend to get one to keep my music on).

From what I have read the outlet stuff comes just like new, they replace any scratched or damaged parts and package it up with the same warrenty. It's just a legality that they cant sell anything as new if they have sold it before. Only problem is your not guaranteed what colour you will get unless you select black (only colour listed).[/quote]
