I've been lurking for a bit, reading the threads, and I'm pleased to see how helpful everyone is here. Definitely helped in my decision to purchase my Mini 9 (which should be here in two weeks, Zeus willing!)
I ordered it with Ubuntu 8.04, 512RAM, and and 8G SSD
. I plan to swap the RAM out (2G) as soon as I get it, but am unsure about the hard drive. I'd like a 16 / 32G Runcore, but am unsure if my needs / usage require the drive. Also, I don't have an external drive, so it's USB boot or nothing for me. I know there are threads / videos to help me on that, so I'm not *too* scared (lol), but wondered what my "order of operations" should be.
Should I just switch the SSD
out as soon as I get it using the usb to boot, or should I run the 8G and get it the way I want, and then clone it / transfer the data to the larger drive?
P.S. I'm only planning on using this to surf the web, listen to a little streaming music, and type some documents / papers for school. Maybe project a slideshow or two for my students. No heavy duty needs; no gaming. Anyone running a 8G SSD
that is happy with the storage space? If I don't need to switch, I can skip all this!
I could just keep programs / files on an SDHC card, right? THANKS!!
