Your maturity shows

There is no need to warn us in advance that you will ask "nooby questions"... just do some research instead and try to understand something on your own before starting a thread asking the forum to help you out

That aside, welcome to MyDellMini I am sure you will learn a lot here... congrats on your new Mini 10v!

Thank you. I ordered the 10v yesterday and should get it by this friday.
I was going to order a Hp mini 1035nr but went with dell instead. I HAVE done research and i was wondering if combat arms (free downloadable MMOFPS from Nexon) works on a 10v? I know it work on an Asus eee 1000h pc and they have similar specs.

I'd imagine that Combat Arms would play, if it works on the eee afterall. There is a gaming section to the forum where they post about what games they've tried.. what works, what doesn't. I've read up a few MMO's on there.
If yours isn't listed.. Then I guess when you get your 10v you can try it for yourself and add it to the list!
Welcome!

Wow, did you order it from Dell or another retailer?

I'm guessing he ordered it from Dell's Outlet. They usually ship next day, and depending how far you are from the TN depot...

I didn't order it from Dell. I got it new off eBay and they had two day shipping with FedEx.
Checked the tracking number and estimated arrival time was Sept. 11 2009. Wish me luck!

Welcome to the board! It sure is nice to have you here rather than getting into trouble somewhere else. Use the search function before posting. Good job saving the coin to get your own Mini. You sound like a nice guy.
