Default Just ordered a mini 10v in the UK :) - 07-26-2009, 09:44 PM

The only change I made to the default is the wireless n card (1510 half as below) - does anyone know if there are any issues with OS X?

Finally can anyone suggest what else to upgrade - I am assuming the ram to 2GB - omg@ the upgrade procedure!
What about the hard drive?

Thanks very much guys!

Also I should add will try my n00b hand at dual boot OS X and Windows 7....

Should have went for the 1.66 processor, if it is available in the U.K.

The RAM upgrade is definitely tricky, but not impossible if you're patient. I have the regular 1.6 Ghz model and it's ok. I got it refurbed though. 1.66Ghz was just too hard to come by cheap.

I dont think processor upgrade was available when choosing the system.

I am due to go off on my honeymoon in one week - so I doubt I will have time to tinker with it just yet - stick some movies on a card and jet off.

But would be interesting to compare system and upgrade options for UK compared to those buying via dell.com.

Has anyone done a hard drive upgrade?

I can't recall a guide for it, though I will double check
