Totally agreed holmes4
There are trade-offs... you cannot magically get performance without sacrificing other aspects and you cannot magically get the portability a netbook offers without sacrificing performance. Heat and power constraints are biggies, as well as space!

I enjoy the mini9 the way it is. If anything I would like it to have a sata drive bay so could flop down a 500GB HDD.

Not sure how hard it is to swap out the MB, but I'd love it if Dell offered a MB upgrade some time down the line with more powerful (but equally power efficient) components. I wish all manufacturers did, because I hate having to dispose of a working laptop in order to upgrade to a new, faster model.
Not going to happen, though.

Nope - not going to happen. You don't see this with desktops either. If you upgrade, someone else will always be available who wants your old one if it still works. I donate old PCs to charity after installing Linux on them.

Great idea; but I doubt it will ever happen. For myself; I think a netbook is what it is and that is what it should be. Mine is a traveling pardner and she (1010) serves that purpose well. But as long as we are dreaming; sure why not. How much did you say you were willing to spend. ????????????????? fdalbor
