Default Just bought one - good deal? - 12-11-2009, 03:15 PM

Hey everyone just joined this forum (been following it for the past few weeks).

I have just purchased a Dell Mini 10v from the UK Outlet store (refurbished) for £183.95 (~$300).


1gb RAM
6 cell battery
1510 Wireless Card
Back cover is Black

What do you guys think? Decent deal?

I just checked on the UK Dell website and a brand new one with the exact same specs would cost me £288.99 (~$471).

I also obtained a free Win 7 Professional copy through my University and will most probably install it once I get the netbook. Judging from the other threads on here, Win 7 runs fine on the 10v right?

Cheers and thanks for all the info in this forum!
