Default 9n Vs. 9. - 02-10-2009, 02:33 PM

Are there any hardwire differences between the mini 9 and mini 9n?

I only see this discrepancy:
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950 vs. Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950.

The N series computers from Dell denote that they are designed, built and shipped with Linux (or FreeDOS) installed. In some cases, the N series have differing hardware than their non-N series brothers. In the case of the Mini9 it ONLY means that the machine is shipped with Ubuntu rather than WIndows as the hardware is identical.

It looks to be the only model with Ubuntu now. The rest of the Mini 9s are XP.

Edit: it was never advertised, but my Mini 9 has an "N" series sticker on it, so I guess that was their intention all along. Mine was purchased with Ubuntu originally.

That's what I figured. I just went to spec out another and saw this new development. Thanks, all.

How can there be a discrepancy? Well, if you read what I wrote, you'll see that they are listed differently.

For instance:

Crucial vs. generic DDR PC2-5300.

They both say 5300... how could they be different? Well... they are.

It's just that the words and numbers your wrote look identical, so we're not quite sure what you meant.

They may look identical to the untrained eye. Look closer.

The second one has a period after it? Seriously I don't get it.
