Default New Guy Here, On my second Mini! - 01-10-2014, 10:50 PM

Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I've been navigating this forum looking for information on these little boogers and I'm impressed with all the stuff I've found.

I'm currently using my Mini 1012. It came to me as a gift last month after my Studio 1747's i7 melted. This one started life with WinXP, 160GB HDD, and 1GB Ram. I upgraded to 2GB RAM and Win7Pro and as I type this downloading Ubuntu.

This isn't my first Mini. In 2010, I had a Mini 9 that came from Dell with a SSD (don't remember the size) and a GB of RAM. That little guy was junk to be honest. Screen went out, then the keys on the board stopped working and finally it just wouldn't turn on so it moved on to the PC afterlife!

Anyways, just saying hello and I'll be navigating the site from time to time. Have a good one!

hello, first time posting, just now getting to know my mini, bought it so I would have something to do while waiting for doctors appointments.Thought about a tablet, but like the keyboard. After working on computers BEFORE windows (one of the worlds first nerds, LOL) Short cut keys are available for any Microsoft program. Question: What is Ubuntu???? surprised I never heard of it, I guess I need to get out more! Mr. Dave
