Hi Guys....this is my first post with my Mini9!
I'm used to having a 17" Alienware laptop at home as a desktop replacement / gaming machine but i picked the Mini9 up from eBay for about $95 in really good condition, fully working, as something to take overseas with us. I'm hoping to take a small passport HDD and download our holiday photos using the Mini9 as we travel. I've had it for about a week and already replaced the RAM with a 2GB stick and the HDD to a 32GB SDD. I would have loved to put in the 64GB SDD but this is my exercise in refurbing a great little machine as cost effectively as i can.
I bought the Mini9 with XP Pro SP3 on it but it was a little slow so i put Win7 yesterday but i can't seem to get any of the features (wifi/bluetooth/camera) to work yet so might have to switch back to XP or try Ubuntu. I also picked up a car charger fairly cheaply from ebay $6 delivered, targus case $6 delivered & a skin $5 delivered. Considering how light the whole machine is, and its size, the fact yiou can easily carry it in a backpack or handbag i'm really looking forward to seeing how mobile its going to be when we are overseas
