Dell Mini 9 Again for $199 until Sep 10th !!! - 09-08-2009, 02:04 PM
I know this is the OSX area, but its the only area I read here. So I thought other Mac users might want this info since the Mini9 is the perfect netbook for OSX
Dell has the mini 9 back for $199 this time only in black (unless you want to pay extra)
Dell Home offers the 2.28-lb. Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Atom 1.6GHz 8.9" Widescreen Netbook in Obsidian Black for $199 with free shipping. Sales tax is added where applicable. This mini-laptop features an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 8.9" 1024x600 glossy LED-backlit widescreen LCD, 1GB RAM, 4GB solid state drive (SSD), 802.11g wireless, webcam, 4-cell battery, and Ubuntu Linux. Deal ends September 10 at 7:55 am ET.
I bought this deal last time and got both a White and Black.
I upgraded both to 2GB RAM and one to 16GB and one to 32GB (I don't see any speed difference between the faster SSD and the slower one in normal use)
Here is what I bought to upgrade.
2GB Newegg Kingston HyperX 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM $32.99
16GB SUPER TALENT FEM16GHDL READ 40MB/sec - WRITE 15MB/sec $49.99
32GB SUPER TALENT FEM32GFDL READ 80MB/sec - WRITE 40MB/sec $109
I should have just purchased this SSD since I've noticed no speed difference in my use (surfing web, watching movies, loading pictures from camera) maybe for other uses it would be slower, but it is only a netbook.
32GB SUPER TALENT FEM32GHDL READ 40MB/sec - WRITE 15MB/sec $89
Whatever SSD you buy just make sure its a "HALF Mini PCIe", I made a mistake and ordered a "Mini PCIe" by mistake and had to order another.
Good luck, Its a great Price!!
