Hello all, I need your help thinking this through; I'm starting to second guess my purchase yesterday for a Mini 9 from Dell:
- 4 MG
$241.10 (including ship and tax)
Here are my concerns:
1) Ubuntu -- I don't love it (sorry, just don't), but I was unable to config the Mini 9 other way. To put XP on it, all I have is an "upgrade install" CD, so I guess I'd need to buy a full verison (~$90 @ newegg).
2) I planned to updage RAm, cheap at Fry's for 2 GM (~$20 @ Fry's -- NO ISSUE)
3) I planned to upgrade the SSD
, but those seem really pricy (~$70 for a 16 MG @ mydigitaldiscounts)
4) No vga to tv capability... on the road I'd like to hook this up to a hotel tv to watch hulu, but apparently you can't do that "out of the box" and would need a converter (~$40 @ Monoprice)
So it seems like I have another $220 to put into this and I'd have to haul around a converter box too to plug to a TV.
Apparently I'm asking too much from a netbook. Do you all agree, or am I not thinking about the above issues correctly?
Thanks in advance for any help getting my head around this.
