Is the Vostro A90 not offered through EPP? I can't find it anywhere.

I can confirm this... (My Vostro came a few days ago.) I didn't notice it at first because it's tucked away under the battery.

As far as the Vostro itself, DellEFI 1.1 does not recognize it as a Mini 9 and asks for confirmation before applying patches, but otherwise OSX installation was pretty painless.

Thanks to all who posted information that helped.

Sorry, you've discovered the opening for the SIM holder, which all Mini 9s have. Unless you got one with the WWAN hardware, there's nothing behind that opening.

Vostro A90 has been on sale in Germany on May 21. & 22.
I ordered one for the price of 99 Euros. First I thought they made a mistake, but the ordering process went well (so far)

However, when I check the order status I'm stuck in phase 1 for five days now. Is that normal behaviour? I selected bank transfer

Evidence attached :

Using bank transfer will typically delay things by several days.

It's weird that the A90 was a EURO only system until April. And then it becomes for sale in the states. Shortly after that it goes on sale at a great discount in Germany and now if you look at the euro.dell.com site, the A90 is no longer available. I've read that some people have had their A90 orders canceled.

I have a Vosro A90 2 G ram, 64 G Crucial SSD. OS X 10.5.7. I see that most of you prefer the RunCore SSD. My Crucial seems to work fine. it was less expensive than the RunCore. Did I make a mistake going with the Crucial? Will I have a problem with it in the future?

Any direct comparison experiance with A90 and M9?
I just bought an M9 for an OSX install, I got it through Outlet but got the M9 over the A90 simply because of the webcam being 1MP bigger.

What comparison are you looking for? Except for the camera and some cosmetic differences, they're the same netbook.
