I have 3 mini 9's all with 2gig ram and two with runcore 64gig SSD
's - also have dell M6400. Why do I have 3 mini's......................
well all were brought through the Vodafone network so came fitted with the 3G card and two are used by my kids (aged 7 & 8) they are a little bit young for the laptops but seeing as they were cheap through the Vodafone network thought it was a good way for them to gain experience without taking control of the M6400.
Both run win 7 Ultimate which runs incredibly well on the mini 9.
I have removed one of the 3G cards and installed this in the M6400 which has also been very useful.
The last mini 9 is my full time work unit, and gets hooked into a 24inch display (1900 x 1080) & keyboard running XP pro and fitted with a 32gig SDHC card.
I also play with operating systems and having 3 mini's has allowed me to test various OS's hav now settled on Win 7 - yes tried OSX but found win 7 superior (my personal preference not a grand statement.
All my mini's are now over 1 year old and all have performed well - the SSD
updates have been well worth it yes expensive but figure I still have another 12 - 24 months before these will be replaced.
Find the mini 9 to be incredibly useful - for travel it's so darn small, use it as a media player - web browser, wife always has one under the bed for facebook kids hardly ever get to use theirs!!!! and as a work unit is just fine, lives with excel, word & outlook can't praise them enough - I do wish for a bigger screen but 12 months ago anything bigger had lower screen res so was worse not better than the mini 9.
