Default Took over a year but I have a Mini coming - 06-01-2010, 01:30 AM

it is the Vostro A90.. I got it for $199 int he outlet, 1 gig ram and 8 gig drive with Webcam and BT..

My wife has had a Mini 9 for about a year and likes it, plans for this one are Win XP on the 8 gig and buy a 32 gig SSD for Windows 7 then swap when I need XP.. unless there is a better way.

I need XP for my Car datalogging software, I have more features by not upgrading it. also planning on adding a SD card for data storage or maybe for XP, if I can dual boot it..

I should have it this week.
