Default Christmas Gift - 12-26-2009, 12:41 AM

Hey,

I have received a Dell Mini 10 from my Sister as a Christmas Gift, so, i have researched and, i can't upgrade RAM, OK.

I'm OK with 1GB RAM because in my workstation i have 4GB, and i use mail, browser, instant messenging and something more with ~700MB on the workstation, so i think it will be nice.

I know how to install Windows 7 on it, and i will do that, but i don't know how i can install a 3G wireless card, or what card i must buy, and, if can i have 3G+GPS in one card?, hmm, what about the TV Tuner?.

Also, if you have another tip or recommendation for upgrade, tell me. :P

That's the reason for opening this thread.
Thanks everyone and have a Great Holiday.

Congrats on your gift, and Welcome to the forum......

I would try to do a search and check on the 3g cards, I am not sure if you can have the 3G and a TV tuner as where they might use the same slot...not sure but I am sure someone will come along and either correct me or agree....but anyway congrats and enjoy your Mini..

PS..try this utility for installing Win7 from USB it works great over 400 people have downloaded it and used it..the less you use MS stuff the better off you are..

I'd actually go with the official Microsoft tool myself, but that's just me.

Hey, thanks everyone. I have sucesfully installed Windows 7 Ultimate from a SD Card that i have for this purpose, now i'm installing drivers, but i'm writing this with the Mini, and i love this netbook, i have used the Mini 9, the Lenovo S10, the Acer Aspire One, and, i like this.

So, can i have 3G only? 3G + GPS?. Also, the drivers from Dell Website are fine for working on Windows 7 or there is a better drivers?, from where i can download the software that Dell includes in the netbook? (specifically the Webcam Software).

I'm listening any suggestions.
And, thanks again, everyone.
