Default Ubuntu 8.0.4 for Mini 9/A90 ram - 06-19-2009, 05:07 AM

Okay, I'm seriously considering picking up an A90 from Dell with Ubuntu installed. Does the version that Dell installs support a 2gb ram upgrade?

Try ubuntumini.com for some help with the Dell Mini 9 and its possibilities with Ubuntu.
Also, this site has some really good guides for the Dell Mini 9 and upgrading the RAM.

Edit : I was wrong

Here is a post further down the article about the 2GB upgrade:
(Ubuntu on the Dell Mini 9: Upgrading Your Mini 9's RAM Guide)

Yes, the kernel has been patched and you can upgrade to 2GB of RAM on Dell's Ubuntu.

Thanks for the response. I went ahead and ordered it a little over a week ago. I'll go ahead and hit up newegg for the 2GB.

You are going to have a great time with it. It does more than I expected, business presentation, downloads camera pictures uploads them to flicker & my wife took it on a business retreat. We even use it to process credit transactions.

It is like a blond in a convertible though, everyone is looking . I think that 7 or more have bought a netbook after seeing this little Mini 9.

Hope your's ships soon.
