I am going to put leopard on it when I get my new hard drive. I turned compression off and it is quite a nice little machine so far. Just reading about flashing the bios. Hmmm I might wait a little while before I do that. :roll:

Thanks for asking about it.
I already ordered the 2G RAM(Shipped today) but I got the 8g SSHD. I know I would upgrade, but I plan to let prices level out a bit. With that in mind I will be using the 8G SSHD for a couple months atleast. What are your thoughts on the speed.
Sounds like a nice set up and a good deal ya got, glad to see you are happy with it
I assume you mean SDHC?

Few I just flashed my bios with the dos tool that was on the forum. It worked really well and was successful. I wanted to get that out of the way before I did too much with my new mini, in case I had to send it back. :? Anyway, I am at A03 now. It would have ruined Xmas if it wouldn't have worked out. :lol:

I can't wait for my Mini to show up either. I ordered one on 12/5 and another for an xmas gift on 12/8. Got email from dell on 12/13 that they shipped. Fedex tracking has show they have been in Nashville, TN since 12/14 ..Haven't moved since sunday. Expected delivery date says 12/17 tomorrow...Kinda of doubt the 12/17 date, but that would be great.

Original expected delivery dates were 12/19 and 12/22.....

I don't get that, I ordered the 4th and now they say mine is shipping the 30th. You ordered a day later and it shipped early.
Seems a bit odd to me.

Yea, but they haven't moved from nashville since sunday...Could be due to the config order? I ordered a black, 1 gb ram, 16 ssd, xp pro, wwan card, bluetooth and 1.3 cam on 12/5 and a white 512,4 gb, linux, bluetooth, 1.3 cam on 12/8 during the special for $299 Mine originally had later expexted ship dates, but seemed to have shipped earlier (or at least that what fedex tracking shows)

Black, 1 Gb, 8 SSD, Ubuntu, Bluetooth, no cam. Oh well, one of life's mysteries.

Glad you are getting yours though, I can't wait for mine
