If win7 is quicker I may look into it... But I dont have a copy of win7 to hand either, and dont plan on giving 80 quid for one (I had a vaio that someone had put a dodgy copy of win7 on and it was never right, wouldnt like to do it again!!)

this is the one I've bought: eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace
If you look at the last picture of it (when it's upside down) there seems to be a lump at the back of it, is this the claimed "double life" battery that has been added on? If so its coming out because it looks awful, just noticed it...

yeah well I bought mine configured the way I wanted it...LOADED, only thing I have done is upgrade the HD, 1st to a 500gb then to a 750gb, next I think I will go for a 750gb (7200 rpm) drive, right now mine is only 5400rpm.....and I also did upgrade the RAM to 2gb which is tough to do considering its the 1010 NOT the 1011, with the 1010 you have to replace the entire daughter board which consists of the processor also, with the 1011 you just swap out the SIMM module.....much easier and much much less expensive.....
PS. 400gb is fine to run Windows 7, but I would increase the RAM to 2gb though

Hi rrfranczak3, are you running 32 or 64 bit windows 7 ? The 35 dollar 2gig daughterboard from asendtech is working fine, looks just like the other one I have but will update in 6 months as to how it is doing.

That pink is not the bright pink that Dell sold, viper green would rally help it though
The lump at the back is the battery. I have it on my Mini 9 too & have learned to live with it. It really only bothered me the first couple days.
