I like the feel of the trackpad a lot more than the one on the Mini.
The trackpad is nice, I don't like the smooth kind. Its a little jumpy though, just a little,.

Yeah - come to think of it, I think mine had a 1Gb stick in it also (I definitely ordered a 8/512 on 4/19 for $199...then they dropped that option), but I had already got a 2GB crucial stick and a 32 GB runcore SSD drive waiting so I swapped everything out and put OSX on it - and it is SWEET!!

Great little machine.

Total tax, shipping, and cost was $374 for Vostro A90, 2Gb crucial, 32Gb runcore + cost of Leopard ($129).

Ordered 4/19, orginal ship date was 5/19. Got a delay email last week with plan delivery 5/27, but it showed up yesterday 5/19 anyway- YES!!

I guess I will have to order that runcore afterall fail.

LOL, I made the exact same mistake! A couple of others here as well. I did get 1GB RAM, though, when I ordered the 512k model, so that was nice.
