Default Re: Dell Mini 9 Now Available from Dell Outlet - 10-26-2008, 08:11 PM

Thanks guys,

This saved money and shortened shipping date by two days. The money saved on a better spec'd unit was worth it - I can live with the window sticker and key, or is there a way around this?

Ah, just checked Dell and it will arrive this Friday 31st, that saved over three weeks of a wait. I also forgot to get bluetooth on my initial order, so it feels good to get that on the new/used one. On a sidenote - for cryin' out loud there should be away to modify your order after you submit it. Other companies do that.

On the linux version there is no xp sticker or the windows key. The joys of Ubuntu, I can live with it, but I hate the stickers and giant windows button. My mini will only suffer a short time until I can get Ubuntu or Leopard on the machine.

Just in case this provides any kind of useful data to anyone, my Mini order that just shipped from the Outlet store was shipped from Wilmington, Ohio.

Probably from La Vergne, TN, actually.

Ah crap, well at least there's no sticker, which I find more annoying.

Just ordered a Mini9 from Dell Outlet using a 15% off coupon ($VX2$XLJR6TGDD). Fully loaded minus the internal bluetooth it came to $372.87 with Next day shipping and tax. I canceled my original Mini9 order. The original order was made on 10-16 with ship date of 11-14 for $461.75. I think I got a deal, I'm getting it two weeks sooner for $88.88 less. Only difference is the bluetooth, I'll just get the dealextreme one for $5.08 and still be $83.80 ahead.

You are correct. More info is available on the DHL tracking and it now says La Vergne, TN as the origin. (Though it still says the original "picked up by DHL" location is Wilmington, Ohio.)
