One extra question - Is it possible to upgrade to 2GB RAM through a Dell website purchase? I did a quick customization for a Dell Mini 9 (starting price $349) and was not given a 2GB RAM upgrade option (only up to 1GB in this case).
YEP, Dell now has a 2gb mini 9 but $$$ are higher than elswhere and you don;t see via the mini9 upgrade options
here's the link. made for dell..
http://search.dell.com/results.aspx?s=g ... MM&cat=all

But at $31.00 (on sale 2GB is way cheaper elswhere.)

fyi, If you ask a dell rep if you can buy one they will tell you no as recently as 2 days ago.. (after I found it for sale on the dell site)

I'm very new to all of this USB drive stuff.

Are certain USB drive's worth purchasing over others?

Any particular brands I should be looking at?

Also...last question, for now.
What's a good general size USB drive for me to purchase?

Corsair
Patriot
OCZ
Super Talent

8 or 16gb is about right these days.


Netbooks -> Mini 9 - 2gb Gskill low latency - Ubuntu 8.04
Asus Eee 701 4g - 1gb - Ubuntu 8.04.1
Desktops -> Phenom Quad @ 2.8 - 16gb - 4x Raptor X in RAID 0 - 2x 4870X2
Brisbane 1.9 @ 2.7 - 4gb - 80gb
Many others, all Linux.

I run Office 2007 without any problems. I installed 2gig memory and have the 16 gig SSD.
I converted my office CD to an ISO image. I installed Virtual Clone Drive (free) from http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html. It simulates a CD/DVD drive in reading the ISO image. The iso image is kept on my passport 320 gig drive. The passport is my data drive. Works great although it will add to battery drain. I haven't kept track of uptime on battery with drive plugged in.
