Default some quick q's - 02-02-2009, 07:18 AM

Hey guys,

I am very close to ordering a Dell mini 9 (Ruby red of course) And gots a couple of questions.

Dell Mini 9 Ubunta (cheapest.)
If i buy that version, would I able to install windows xp via thumbdrive or a external optical drive?

For the 1.3 megapixel webcam.
if I upgrade the ram to 2 gigs, would be able to sync properly with video and sound? I notice on youtube it doesnt really sync properly. Example:
(awk video btw.)

And thats it!

1. You can buy a Mini 9 with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed and then format and install Windows XP without any problem. That is exactly what I did with mine.

2. I have had ZERO issues playing videos from YouTube. Audio/Video are synchronized perfectly. However, I do have 2GB of RAM CAS 4 and a 32GB RunCore SSD that improve the Mini's performance.

3. You have a PM.

Hope this helps.
