Allow myself to introduce.... myself! Refurb Mini 9 w/ WWAN en route - 04-15-2010, 11:27 PM
Greetings one and all!
Hi, I'm Ben, and well... I hit the jackpot last night!!! After refresh spamming the outlet store for about a month I finally found a Mini 9 w/ an open WWAN slot!
Double-jackpot was that it was in Black with 8GB SSD, 1GB RAM, BT 2.1, 802.11g Wifi & 1.3MP Cam for only $299! Add the 15% coupon along with next day delivery and I get it tomorrow by 10:30AM for $304.
After reading through the forums (for several months) and searching the heck out of them as well I've come to a few questions about upgrade components, as some of this stuff can be a bit... confusing...
-RAM: Kingston HyperX seems to be the favored RAM but I have a question about the Heat & Clock speed... Which 2GB RAM should I go with for primarily low temp and secondly performance?
-SSD: RunCore seems to be the all around favorite (and since I can't go with T-Style because of WWAN slot) will a RunCore Pro IV Light 50mm PCI-e SSD be my best choice for a SSD?
-WWAN Card:I couldn't seem to find much info on which card to acquire (or if it even makes much of a difference) so should I just go with the Dell 5530 or is there another, better card I can purchase?
-WWAN/WLAN Antenna: My machine has a WWAN antenna in the LCD cover.. but does it come with a separate WLAN antenna, or does it use the WWAN antenna, or do I need to acquire a WLAN antenna by itself?
Please, if you know of a thread in which any or all of these questions have been addressed I would really appreciate it if you could point me in that direction.
ps. If anyone has any of these components or information that they would like to share / be rid of please feel free to message me here or email me email@example.com

Hands down better brightness and contrast ratio and color. Only neg is the viewing angle is half that of CHO and others.
Check your lcd in device manager. I'm curious if it actually shipped AUO.
Heres how So you think all a90/910 lcd panels are equal? Think again.

Y614G Liquid Crystal Display, 8.9WSVGA, Light Emitting Diode, True Life, Lg Philips LcdLooking at the two of them side by side the LG looks to be just as bright (if not a little brighter) with as good of contrast but a significantly better viewing angle - I find that when looking at the AUO even dead-on there is always some edge that appears slightly out of the projected viewing angle. The LG is running XP & AUO is on UNR.
