Default Ordering a Dell Mini 9, what's Dell up to? - 05-29-2009, 02:31 PM

It seems like the available options change very often.
Today, the only option was a machine with Ubuntu. Yesterday, XP and Ubuntu were both available.

One or two weeks ago, when I first started thinking about getting one, large HD's were an option, at least up to 32g and maybe 64g (I don't recall)

Yesterday and now, the max is 16g. However today, there were options for 4g or 8g, which may not have been available yesterday.

What's going on? Is Dell phasing out the 9? I sure hope not. I was hoping to get one with a big HD to multiboot various OS's. I was on the fence about getting mobile broadband, which resulted in my delay. Now, on an Ubuntu machine that is no longer an option.

I was hoping to get a fully configured machine directly from Dell for Warranty purposes. However, I don't mind upgrading on my own.

Will my desired configurations return, or am I out in the cold?
Still a nice supply on ebay, but not with mobile broadband.
