Default Future of Mini9 - 09-30-2009, 07:14 AM

hi, new to this site and hoping someone can help.
I'm interested in the Mini9/A90 but am wondering if it will go away. Any insights as to how the lineup will change with the introduction of Win7? Do I wait in anticipation of more SSD/RAM? or will the mini9 go away?
thanks!

It already did go away - officially discontinued months ago, even though Dell seems to keep finding some to sell. The 10v is the successor product, though some of us prefer the 9.

I doubt that Win7 itself will change the lineup.

Ah. My little child...I will never let go my mini 9.

Well, I was thinking about upgrading it to Win7 from XP lite, but it runs so damn nice now.

If it ain't broken, don't fix it!

Win7 is very nice on the Mini 9 - I highly recommend it.

I was a bit bummed when they discontinued the 9, but I'm just ecstatic that I have my little guy in my hands already! It is the perfect size for me and I would *still* recommend it if someone asked!
