Default Mini9 at retails stores? - 02-23-2009, 05:40 PM

Hi,

I wanted to use a Mini9 before I purchase one. Are there any US retailers that may stock them? I did a quick search here and @ Dell.com, and didn't see any.

Thanks for any input!

Sam's Club and Best Buy have advertised them in the past.

I have definitely seen them at Best Buy. I have also seen the advertisements for Sams Club but we don't have any near where I live. Your most cost effective route is still going to be the Dell Outlet although you might be able to haggle a better price with the folks at Best Buy. I am not sure of there mark up on those.

Sam's Club is delivery only, so I doubt you'll find one at a store.

The same holds true for the BestBuys, at least in my area, when I too wanted to be able to handle the mini 9 before committing to a brand.

That all changed very quickly when I got a heads up on the Dell Outlet combined with 20% discount on a refurbished unit. I jumped on it and can say without hesitation I'm happy that I did.

I can't say the same for the Dell I/O magic DVD-RW drive however. I have posted on that elsewhere.

The local Best buy here stocks them, don't know about in your area though.

I bought my unit in Dec.'08. I haven't looked lately, however, a google can possibly give a store "in x mile radius" that does for example. "Size does matter!".......storewise, that is.

At least some Micro Center stores have the 1GB/16GB/webcam/XP model in stock for $450, which is now more than dell.com.

Thanks for the input here.

I went to two local Best Buys, and one of the stores did have a display model for me to play with. It was not with the rest of the netbooks for some reason, but they did have it over in another section.

Nothing official yet, but it looks like AT&T Wireless Stores may be selling subsidized Mini 9s with their laptop connect service...
