That's all I thought I would do...let me know if it's possible to physically switch those keys, as well as remap them. Thanks!

They should pop off like any other laptop keyboard key so it shouldn't be an issue. I'll let you know

Ok.. went ahead and ordered the rest of the bits I needed..

Apple Mac Box (OSX, iWork 09, iLife 09) - $115 shipped after live.com discount (ebay)
Kingston Hyperx 2gb stick - $25.34 shipped after live.com discount (newegg)
SuperTalent 32gb ssd + Samsung SE-S084B external dvd rw drive combo - $130.30 shipped after live.com discount (SuperBiiz)

Total so far - $443.78 which is just barely more expensive than a 32gb iTouch ($399 + tax)

You did OK, OP, but seeing as how you can get the Dell Vostro A90 Netbook for $207 I probably would have gone with that instead. Bluetooth, webcam, all the bells and whistles, AND it looks better than the Mini 9 since it has an all-black case.

The standard keyboard is pretty awful, but I'm trying to decide if I want to switch too.
It's not much money, but I'm tired of working on my system and just want to use it for a while.

The vostro deal came about after I recieved my mini9 so thats a moot point. Only thing the a90 has that I prefer is that BT is standard. If I knew the vostro was going to be going for 199 I definitely would have waited but thats neither here nor there at this point.

As for the keyboard I might switch out to the international one or just switch the keys around. Haven't decided yet.
