Talking Did Dell upgrade me to the 16gb SSD for FREE? - 05-21-2009, 03:37 AM

So I got my Vostro A90, the $199 deal(512 ram, 8gb ssd, Ubuntu) yesterday, hooray finally! But (I'm not complain at all) Dell shipped it with 1gb of ram! I'll take that any day. Now I'm not really that familiar with Ubuntu, so Im cruising around this system checking things out and I come to Disk Usage Analyzer. It says Total filesystem capacity 13.8 GB (used: 6.4 GB available: 7.3 GB) .....!!! Did Dell give me a 16gb SSD??

Check the BIOS, but last time I checked the disk usage analyzer it doubles your disk capacity.

You have a 8GB, don't get your hopes up. Boot the computer and press '2' (without quotes) at the Dell logo. You'll be able to see your SSD size. I made that mistake, even posted about it.
