Knowing what I know now, I would have preferred a 10, and maybe the 11. I have learned that the upgrade to 2gb for me isn't important (1gb would be fine), but I can and do type fine on the 9's keyboard, but a little larger and correct placement of the ' would be better, and I absolutely, positively, will never, ever, ever, ever go back to a standard HD. I can not live without the speed of the SSD
(I only have the stock 16gb STEC), but I hate the fact that there are no options in the PCie connection except for runcore. I do want faster processing and video card for better video, but the lack of fan and extended battery life on a small lightweight platform rocks.
so a 10 or 11 with a decent SATA connected (I think) SSD
would have been the option for me. I almost opted for the HP 1010.....even though I love my mini now, the video stuff sucks.
