Wow! Mini 10. Built in 3g, TV tuner, GPS and 802.11N? Oh, and subsidized by AT&T? Count me in. :mrgreen:

Can I interest anyone in a slightly used Dell Mini 9?

The Mini10 is using the "Poulsbo" chipset.. That gets you GMA500, not GMA950 (better video performance, worse 3d performance), and locks you down at 1gb of ram. Also locks you out of OS X currently (maybe our intrepid team of driver writers can code their way around that (ie, write video drivers from scratch), but 1gb of ram in OSX is un-fun).


Tired of wondering if your Mini9 is doing ANYTHING? - Add a HDD Activity LED

Any chance we can just buy the screen and touchpad by themselves through dell and add them? The screen doesn't necessarily have to be any larger than our current one size wise, just more efficient use of space, so it could possible have same mounting apparatus I would assume.
