Default Ordered mini 9 stock- will this be fine for my uses? - 03-01-2009, 06:21 PM

Ordered a "stock" mini 9. I really do not know much about computers and all of the specs, but I did not upgrade anything and chose no camera. I plan to use this netbook for internet and creating documents (I have been rec'd Open Office- this OK since I will be using Ubuntu) and things like that. Will the stock model be OK for these uses?

You should be okay, and Open Office should be good too. If you plan on creating a lot of documents, you might consider buying an SDHC card (8 or 16 GB) and using that to store your documents. I leave mine in the card reader slot, and use that to store documents, photos, etc.

Is that just like a camera card? Do you just choose to save to removable storage? Thanks so much!

Yes, some digital cameras use SD cards. HERE are some found on Newegg.com. Yes, once you plug the card in, it will be detected as a removable drive with its own drive letter, then you can save your files to it.
