Just ordered mine from Dell so this is all factory, should be here in a few days time:

Mini 9

£360 so far, OS X will probably cost another £50 from eBay and I'm sure I've got an old copy of XP kicking around somewhere for some dual boot antics.

Had to get one as I'm a Vaio Picturebook fiend from back in the days and this is just like it apart from being usable

$299 for 8gb Win XP system
$25 for 2gb Crucial mem upgrade
$23 for 8gb SanDisk Extreme III SD Card

I also spent $20 for a compact micro sd card reader and card that I keep an install of Puppy Linux on which I use occasionally.

I'm looking to install the webcam at some point.
