the board he told me about was a refurbished board and even at that he would have to get permission from the manager to even sell it....but once he gave me the price..that basically ended the conversation, and yes you can buy a system on line with ubuntu on it with 2gb or win 7 with 2gb which ever one it is I dont remember any more but the deal is that you cant get it with all the options that I have in my 1010...so I would rather stick with my options and just deal with the 1gb

I honestly believe Dell does not want to sell the upgrade to the 1010 as that might draw sales away from the 1012. The less they can do to make upgrades to the 1010 I think the more they believe 1010 owners will upgrade to the 1012.
For myself I am staying with the 1010 as the 1012 does not appear to offer much more performance to warrant investment in a new system.

Somewhere down the road I will buy a newer mini; someday; but not today. fdalbor

i can't believe i found this. i've been struggling ever since i bought the 1010 to upgrade it, having seen some 10v upgrades online and mistaking them for something i could do to mine. after finally coming across the solution, it's very sad to hear that it's not a realistic one. my kingdom for an additional gigabyte.

I agree, the processor offers very little in performance difference but from what I have read the battery life difference is substantial, I get about 5-6hrs on mine, some times maybe close to 6 1/2 but the 1012 gets close to 9hrs. I think that would be my only reason to even think about it, but I think the 1012 is ugly, the colors dont even match (unless you get white)...the lid doesnt fit flush...(dont get me started).....but I also will stick with my 1010, maybe until the 1013 or 1014 (lol)....

Default 2GB Upgrade - 04-27-2010, 11:14 PM

After spending most of the afternoon on the phone, I found that the part name is a Mother Board Service Kit. Part #5RXKK and the price is $209.99.
This is W/O the TV tuner.

thats for the 1010 I guess, by any chance you got a part number for the kit w/the TV tuner?
