Default Upgrades for Mini 12 ? - 04-06-2009, 09:18 PM

I'm a new mini 12 owner, and am a bit cloudy on the possibility of hardware upgrades - specifically the drive and RAM.

Some stuff specifies Mini 9 and I'm not sure if the 12 is the same or not.

I've read the relevant threads and checked the MDD site, which seems to be a well-run operation, but I'm still confused if the RAM can be upgraded ... I read the stock RAM is soldered onto the board, so that's something a tech would have to do I presume? Also is the available replacement RAM, if there is any, clocked at 1.6 or lower?

Would like some clarity on possible drive upgrades too please, if these take the place of the existing drive or add to it, etc.

Much thanks.

When we will see at MDD a 1.8" ZIF PATA SSD which RunCore specially designed for Dell Inspiron Mini 12?


Dell Inspiron Mini 12, 1.6 GHz CPU, 1 GB RAM, 40 GB HDD, 3 cell battery, MS Windows Vista.
Want to install internal WWAN modem, replace HDD with SSD or CompactFlash.
P.S. English it is not my native language, so, please, excuse me for its poor quality.

I will send you the drive and some benchmarking software you report back if you like it you can buy it at a discount or send it back.

It goes to the 1st person here who wants to do it but you must have over 30 posts and a Dell Mini 12.

When might we see something about this?

EDIT: Also.. i got this in private message after asking but nothing after..
