Um, no. Linux and XP are the choices for the Vostro A90, same as for the Mini 9.

The only entry for the A90 on that page, when I look at it, says Linux. Try this one: http://www.dell.com/content/products/pr ... l=en&s=bsd It shows Linux and XP Home configurations.

Classic case of Dell web design cut and paste syndrome.

Another (important) difference to take into account is that the Vostro A90 comes with an open mini-card slot, even with the installed Bluetooth. (per Dell tech support - I cannot confirm with first-hand knowledge)

I cracked the screen of my Mini 9 accidentally and had to order another one right away and chose Vostro A90 because I hated the silver part of my black Mini 9. I ordered on April 24th and received it today.

The BIOS version is 03 instead of 04...

FWIW: Should be even cheaper once the A90 shows up at the outlet in about a month...
Pardon the question, but where is this Outlet I keep hearing about?

On the main page at Dell.com, scroll to the bottom. It's the bottom left link.
