Re-purpose my Dell Mini 9 with a project?

Well, it's 2013 and I haven't used my poor little Dell Mini 9 in years. It's just not fast enough anymore for modern websites, I find. Mine only has 1GB of RAM and 1.6GHz/533Mhz FSB/512K cache). Has...

Lightbulb Guide to turn Dell Mini 9 into a Chromebook?

Well, all, my Dell Mini 9 has faded from use because I just don't understand Linux very well and everything is too outdated for modern web browsing. Even though the size of this little guy is...

I searched my office like crazy and found the tiny piece of paper I wrote the password on. I couldn't find that for months and just did. I suck. At least after all this I finally can update my Mini....

Right, you would think a recovery would be easier than an install. However, there is no GRUB screen when I try to boot up my computer. I asked for help on an Ubuntu forum, and without a GRUB screen,...

Red face Reinstalling Ubuntu with CD and no CD drive

I haven't the slightest clue what password I chose for Ubuntu when I first set up my Dell Mini 9. Now that's proving to be very freaking annoying since I can't do any administrative tasks or update...

Re: Have you purchased a larger SSD for your Mini?

My option isn't up there: No, the cost of SSDs are too high. SSDs are fairly new, and the price reflects that. When the prices start to come down, maybe I will get one, but who knows when that'll be....

Re: Keyboard configuration

One last thing that bugs me, but isn't a huge deal: I can never tell if I have accidentally pressed the caps lock button. (And let's be honest, that's easier to do on a computer like the Mini.) A...

Re: Hulu playback

Mine is 512MB, 8GB SSD, Ubuntu... real bare bones. If I try HQ on Hulu, it does lag and get choppy. Full screen is OK in low-res, though maybe a little slow, but not bad. It's best to just play...

Re: What do you like more on Dell Mini?

I never owned a laptop before, simply because I couldn't afford to plunk down the few hundred dollars without a compelling reason when I have a high-powered desktop. If I had to pick one thing, it...

Re: Replacement Keyboard more normal

Looking at the original post... Wow, that looks much better. The backspace is a little on the small side, but I think the space bar is fine. Really, I'd be OK with them literally switching the...

Keyboard configuration

Lightbulb Re: Your Mini's Total Cost?

I feel pretty good about my purchase. The total came to just $218, and that's including tax and shipping. (I signed up for a Dell account to get a measily 3% off.)

I got the $199 special. (I'm...

Re: Could this RAM work?

Boo. That sucks. Well, I'll see how 512MB holds up before I worry about upgrading. I bought this thing because it was so cheap, just $199, but now I have to exercise some serious self-control to not...

Re: How long did it take for your Dell to arrive?

Does Dell call before delivery? I got a call just now and I didn't answer it because it was an 877-number, which are usually telemarketers. So I looked up the number, 877-511-4552 and people were...

Re: How long did it take for your Dell to arrive?

Yes, mine started in Nashville, TN. It's in my city right now. It was on the delivery truck as of 7:25 a.m. It's 2:11 p.m. Where is it?! My Dell order says 4/9 for delivery, but the FedEx tracker...

Hi, the RAM upgrade thread was closed. This is desktop RAM leftover from when I upgraded my desktop. Will this work in the Dell Mini 9? I don't think it's the kind I've seen in tutorials, but I...
