Well, my dell mini 9 is lacking of the SSD
since one year, so I use an external USB Harddisk as OS Disk (Macosx 10.6.8).
I use my dell mini as server with integrated display mostly.
Direct use is download station (for longer running tasks), Webserver and VNC Server (to check whats going on at home).
I also use the webcam for surveilance purposes.
Still, I decided to order a 32gb ssd
to not to be dependent on the USB disk at all.
I also have a Canon LIDE 35 Scanner which is not supported by MacOS Lion (which runs on my iMac, MacBook Pro 13" (this replaced my mini as notebook) and my MacMini.
I hope the Drive will arrive next week, so that my Mini will continue its mission
