I'm not really sure. I went to Dell's site to check my order and it can't find the order, so it was over 2 years. I'm thinking about 3 years.

It's probably been a year or so with no problems whatsoever. Hackintosh runs nice and smooth. It's hooked up to keyboard/mouse and an external monitor.

I bought one for my wife about 3 years ago. no problems at all. a nice little netbook. I sometimes wish it would die so I could get something the same size but newer/faster.

Exactly one week now. Installed OS X a couple of days ago and hope to get a couple of good years of use out of it.

the thing is the atom cpu has not changed much and they are still quite slow, so really, not sure that the new generation is that better.

I ve been using my mini for almost 3 years now. everything is fine but the battery is getting old, wear level is 23%. Win 7 pro 32 bits is working very well tho.

Daily, since I bought it in 2009. Battery is now only lasting a little over two hours, and had recent problems with the PSU / charger unit, now replaced, but I plan to keep using it as it is until MS ends support for WinXP in April 2014.

At that point, I'll try to find a version of Linux that will run on it out of the box, and keep on using it.

The Dell Mini 10v arrived today. It was advertised as "not working for parts" with no charger. It was a little dirty, but not bad. I plugged in my the charger from the Mini 9 and it resumed from hibernation, which surprised me.

It doesn't look like it was used much. The 160GB hard drive (WD Blue) is pretty empty. I like the keyboard a lot better than the one on the Mini 9. This one only has 1GB RAM and it's running what looks like the original install of Win XP Home which is fine by me. I might see about getting Win 7 on it, but it will probably need a RAM upgrade for that.

The HDD seems faster than the Stec SSD in the Dell Mini 9.

I swapped out the 1357 wireless for a 6235AN + bluetooth adapter so I could connect at N speeds (very nice). I also updated the antivirus since it was from 2012.

Here is the listing. Yeah, it looks like a kid had it. Stickers galore... Ha!

Great find!

Yeah, the STEC SSD in the Mini 9 is a bit of a slowpoke.
