Ordered on the 31st, received on the 3rd but missed the delivery: received on the 4th. Though it took me until around 6 today to get the right Ubuntu on it. :P


Received lowest quality mini 9 with 512 megs RAM, 4 GB SSD. Additions:
-2 GB RAM
-4 GB SSD [2 GB SD Card: getting 16 GB SDHC]
Sold for $180 so I could buy Mini 10, XP/Ubuntu, 160GB HD, 1GB RAM, 1366x768 screen, 6-cell for $260.
[Extra screen space IS AMAZING, as is having a working keyboard]

Ordered March 12, delayed once, (site was never updated), got shipped email yesterday, April 6 (site still has not yet updated)

Love to be able to see where it is, but apparently Dell's ability to keep their info updated is non-existent.

It now has a new estimated delivery date of 28th April, originally 9th April. They really are useless. Ordered on the 20th March, Dell UK.

Hey there, I'm in the UK. Ordered 24/03/2009, and very excitedly on 06/04/2009 went for delivery.

However, very paranoid now, as I'm not sure when the laptop's going to exactly arrive, and as I'm 2 hours from my Uni (where it's being delivered to) I can't just nip and check. Anyone any idea if in the UK whether they actually ring you to tell you a date? What does the 4 days mean?

*eep*

Dell Mini 9, Sticker1 black, 16GB, 2GB.

First post here. Been reading for a week or 2 while I waited.

Ordered 3/24 with the $50 off and EPP. $207

1.3 Webcam
512 MB
8 GB
Ubuntu
White

Attempted on 4/4 (who is in the office on Saturday!?)
Delivered 4/7! El Yay!

Now to wait for the 64 GB Runcore since I already installed the 2GB Crucial ram from Newegg. Once that shows up I'm have myself a sweet triple boot setup with Ubuntu, Windows 7, and OSX 10.5.6. Be a fun little toy!

they don't actually start production on them ... it just means that the factory has been sent the work order for it ...

right now they have a delay on the main chassis for the Mini 9s which may cause a delay on actual production ...

Just talked to the rep, it's now in the boxing stage. Any idea how long boxing usually takes on a mini 9?

Oh, and has anyone found a decent GPS mapping program for ubuntu?
