i went with the 9 because i already had a 15" laptop. it is a bit too big to take with me everywhere. i wanted one that was ultra portable. and now that i've had the 9 for about a week now, i'm glad i went with the 9

Mini 9.
The 12 might be nice- i.e. have a normal keyboard and a better screen - but the form factor is the thing for me. I can haul it around my store and not need a cart, shoulder strap or whatever and be able to check inventory levels at the distributorship, place orders and (ahem) check the board from time to time without having to go sit down in front of a desk. too handy.

I got the 9 since one of the reasons I got this was to have my own laptop with me if I had to travel for work. I prefer to keep my personal use off of my work laptop. If I was going to consider the Mini 12 I feel like I might as well get a Dell XPS 1330 which is about the same size, around 4lbs, and a great price. My mom just got one of those...great laptop!

it was all between the HP 1000, the mini 12, and 9.

I was disappointed with the mini 12. I thought for $50 more they culd have put a decent processor in, like a duo core. I was after a sub AU$1000 laptop that was as easy and portable as the Sony 11" and that the battery life would last as long. therefore I picked the Dell mini 9, knowing full well its easy to upgrade, and i can whack on a 9 cell battery. Like i said it has to be portable I clock up 150 miles of train traveling round the city a day! and i wanted something to keep me quiet on thoose 1 hour train journeys.

I bought a 9 solely for OSX compatibility. 9" screens don't bother me, and that's really the only thing I see that puts the 12 over the 9.

I purchased 9 for os X and how easy it is to upgrade. Plus I have a 14" laptop at home so if I would have purchased the 12' I don't think I would have noticed enough difference. I wanted something I could take to the restaurant and work on while still keeping all the food on the table (with a larger laptop then you feel the need to take it off once dinner arrives).

Bought a Mini 12 -screen size is important to me. Ordered 01.23.09, no sign of shipment yet. Dell support seems confused about delivery date- waiting to hear from corporate....hint of popularity might be Costco.com site, which talks about overwhelming demand causing delays. Which is something considering the Vista config / $1oo more than dell site..
