I just bought this for my experiment, and because i want a large High speed drive (already have a 32gb flash but its "slow-ish" writing)

With the stock Ubuntu mini9 as it's installed from Dell, you'll have around 1GB left over on a 4GB SSD. I'd recommend getting the 8GB SSD for the additional headroom and the 8GB SSD is faster than the 4GB stock STEC drive anyways so you'll get a performance boost as well.

When you do Ubuntu updates, by default the downloaded packages are not deleted after installation. This makes things pretty crowded on a 4GB Dell 8.04 install. So do
sudo apt-get clean
