Default Dell Mini 9 Now Just $249 - 02-09-2009, 12:17 AM

Dell have decreased the price of their base mini 9 system with Ubuntu and 512 RAM / 4GB SSD to the all-time-low price of $249, making it one of the cheapest 9-inch netbooks out there.

I can't but help think this is an attempt to clear out stock of Mini 9's for an upcoming release of the Mini 10? Who knows?

Check out the Mini 9 product page..

Default 8 GB SSD upgrade for $10 - 02-09-2009, 10:15 PM

Pick the Mini 9 second from the left (next to the $249 model) by clicking "Customize With Ubuntu". You get exactly the same model except with the 8 GB SSD and it cost a mere $10 more: $259.00.

The free shipping was mis-programmed when I bought mine so I just did a chat and got squared away.

I'm so tempted to grab another Mini 9, what with having an extra 16GB SSD and a 2GB RAM stick kicking around...

If I wasn't in the middle of building a $2,200.00 gaming system I'd be all over this deal!

This is irrelevant since I already 4G/512 model for the low low price of $249, but I went to look and verify this. They took the "Customize With Ubuntu" button away. XP only. :cry:

Does anyone know if Dell would adjust the price for the systems bought in last month or so. I think I bought mine around Xmas...

If it was Xmas, then I doubt it. You have 30 days to return it, and I figure thats about how far they will go to reprice it. There have been reports of Dell offering 25.00 to people that called them wanting to return a mini, if they agreed to keep it, but that was within the 30 day mark.

Offered me $50 off to keep it & $10 off mouse. But I called when I received it. Paid $329 for previously ordered new-- 16GB SSD & 1GB RAM before tax/shipping middle of January.

Thats not a bad deal at all. I paid 263.99 with a 16gb ssd and 1.3mp web cam, after using a 20% coupon. I read some of those posts, and thought about calling them to return it, but with my luck, they would just say ok, ship it back.
