First it seemed there was no more SSD hard disk option. Now I don't see it at all on the US Dell Home & Home Office site. I still see it on the Small Business site. No stock right now at the Dell...

Returning mini for service - Does Dell care if it runs OS X?

I bought a Dell mini 10v that suddenly stopped booting about 12 hours in. I can return it for warranty service, but I wonder if Dell will get upset that it has OS X on the hard disk. The thing is...

When and how to update to 10.6.1. (10.6.2 needs a special tiny patch that spoofs the CPU so OS X doesn't think its an Atom).

I'm excited to see a cheap Android phone, but Dell really went out of their way to cripple the 3i severely. No 3G and no wifi. Its practically a quadriplegic.

Having said that I did see two refurb 4GB SSD models for $209, but I can't describe that deal as necessarily better than the Vostro with 16GB SSD +cheap webcam +BT.

Indeed how long the A90 will...

1000 Vostro A90's, black, 16GB, $249 (+tax, +shipping)

Just got email from Dell Small Business. Now that the mini 9 is gone, this identical Vostro A90 seems like the only game in town. And, at $249 for one with a 16GB SSD, I can't wait for any better...

There may be a couple Mini 9 stragglers on the dell refurb store. Also the Vostro A90 is still sold by Dell Business. I too am baffled by Dell's decision. In its favor, the 10v has a more standard...

mini 9, a90, 10v... any others work?

Rumor that the mini 9 is being discontinued. Have had trouble finding a decent deal on it, and now it may be gone. If a mini is going to cost much over $300, for that money can't you get a larger...
