Technically, no. Just cosmetics. Also, the default configurations tend to be different. But under the skin, they're the same. Even the BIOS versions are interchangeable (but keep in mind that the A90 BIOS level is one lower than the comparable Mini9 BIOS level.)

Mini 9|2GB RAM|64GB RunCore|Intel 5300|Windows 10

Even thought some people say that build quality is better on one or the other, or one opens further, they are not true. I one had some free time with my a90 and my grandparents' mini9, and my comparison showed that there is no difference.

Totally the same. Just a different grade of black plastic on the case. Less marketing, less bling, same thing.

Consider the A90 the Chevrolet Cavalier and the Mini 9 is a, um Cadillac Cimarron

Mini 9: nice name.
Vostro A90: crappy name.

What the hell is a "Vostro"?
