Hey everybody,

This is my first post to the forum, and in it I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself..
My name is Ray and i'm from northern New Jersey. I purchased a Mini 10V (which Dell shipped 9/5, and estimates i'll have 9/10.. i'm psyched. With a little luck maybe it'll be here Wednesday the 9th?)
I got it pretty standard, Obsidian Black, it's got the 1024x600 screen, Windows XP, all the usual bells and whistles.
It came with a $25 Dell giftcard which I plan to use on either some kind of case for it, or a USB mouse.
I got a pretty decent deal on it. I'm an art major at a local university, and seeing as i'm a college student I got it new (with a student discount) for about $275 + tax. It seems perfect for writing papers, and killing time on the internet while i'm at school, etc. Strangely enough I also purchased a wireless router with the system which has yet to ship.

I've been reading around the forum the past few days and have seen a wealth of information. I'm somewhat tech savvy and would eventually like to attempt a 2 gig ram upgrade which seems rather popular around here. I can't wait to recieve my system and contribute to the forum!
Thanks!

greetings from south jersey. If you are going to be writing extensive papers I would recommend a wireless keyboard and mouse. Maybe even a second monitor. It is a great computer but I dont know if I would want it to be my main system.

I have a Dell desktop, which is my main system.
I'm a commuter and often have long days with breaks here and there. I was looking for something extremely light and easy to transport so this seemed like a decent buy

Congratulations! I guess mine is a day or two behind yours. Crazy that yours took so much longer though; I ordered mine on 8/29
Whereabouts are you MiniGreenMac? I live in Roxbury (in Morris County), and go to school at William Paterson.
