Default Greetings... - 02-17-2009, 02:04 PM

Greetings,
I bought a Mini 9 with 1GB ram, 8GB ssd, 1.3mp webcam and Win XP Home at BestBuy over the weekend for $299. Not a bad a deal or at least compared to what that configuration cost at dell.com. I see now I probably could have got a better deal via Dell outlet...etc. O well, it is a cool little netbook and it will be nice to have on business/vacation trips versus my old heavy Dell 8200i laptop! Oh, and I might upgrade ram and ssd eventually but it seems OK as-is for now. :mrgreen:

Oh, I was just checking the Dell Outlet site and they currently do not have better deals than what I got at BestBuy. So, I did pretty good considering. Any ways, back to reading the forum...

I am a complete newbie here-I too just bought the mini 9 at Best Buy today. I've been checking out this site for a few days now to see what I might be getting into. I'll probably have some questions tomorrow when I actually get to "play" with my new little gadget. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that got the Best Buy one.

I have exactly what you have, but without the webcam. I haven't found any need to add more memory.

Yeah, that's what I see as well so far (memory meter). I will hold off on getting the 2GB ram unless I find a dirt cheap deal. I did buy a 8GB SDHC memory card yesterday for it.
