That's great, though!! Buying from the Outlet definitely gets faster shipping -- they're already built! Enjoy it!

Sure, whatever you have to tell yourself to make the wait more bearable. :lol:

j/k. You have a good point: you got to order exactly what you wanted. I was at the mercy of the available stock on the outlet site. Luckily, the one previously ordered/new Mini available was the one I would have configured anyway. 8-)

I'm definitely interested in the US-INTL keyboard. I'm going to give the stock keyboard a shot first, but something makes me think that won't last long.

Actually I couldn't find the right base components in a machine from the Outlet -- none that I saw as recently as TUE had anything larger than a 16gig drive. While I've read the stock 64gig drive isn't as fast as the replacement one (RunCore?), I didn't want to sink the $ into the replacement drive up front.

Me too, I lucked out and got a previously ordered as new (using the 20 percent off refurb coupon) from the Outlet, payed for the cheapest shipping, which i think is 8 bucks, and I had it on the third day afterward. Less than three days. I had placed the order in the late afternoon, and by that night it had shipped already supposedly. But hey, you are getting a brand new Mini configured just how you like it, so don't worry, it's worth the wait.

Wow, that's fast -- and it sounds like you got a great deal, too! I was able to get $25 off instantly so I sank that back into overnight delivery. I'm really glad I did, too -- I was laid off in DEC but I start a new job on MON and I'd've gone (even more) NUTS if nobody was gonna be home to sign for my new baby!

Mine came in the mail toady from the outlet. Looks just like new. Beautiful! Except for the wallpaper... that was the first thing to go... even a Dell logo-ed one would've been better...

I ordered from the outlet today

cheap XP one 512k I will replace anyway anf 8GB SSD which I might replace in the future
with 20 % off it was a great deal.

they had Linux ones starting at $229 less $20% , real cheap to start playing !

Oh my. I can't believe I bought my Mini 9 in the one week when the 20% off coupon wasn't in effect. It expired the 16th, I bought mine on the 19th, and it looks like the coupon is back here on the 24th. Darn my luck! :shock:
