I haven't used memoryc before, but I ordered from them on Monday, which was a public holiday in the UK (not sure about the Republic of Ireland), and it was delivered on Friday to the UK. I had specified regular postal delivery (as I wasn't in a hurry) which is the slowest method.
The Runcore was packaged in bubble wrap and shipped inside a cardboard envelope-style container.
It installed fine replacing the stock 8GB SSD
(*)! (I didn't use the cheap screwdriver that shipped with the SSD
though - as I had much better quality jewellers screwdrivers to hand, with much finer tips, and was wary that the SSD
screws might be easy to strip. No problems with mine.
(*) I bought my Dell Mini 9 from a UK retailer of factory re-furbs, Morgan Computers. It came with the 8GB SSD
, 1GB RAM, Ubuntu, Bluetooth and the 1.3MP webcam, but sadly no 3G WWAN module (or socket for one - just the pads!) for a pretty good price.
