Default How much of the SSD does it occupy? - 10-09-2008, 08:55 PM

I am wondering how much of the SSD is taken up by the stock Dell Mini 9 Ubuntu? In particular I am curious how much of the 4/8/16GB SSD is left over. I am thinking about getting the 4GB, and using it for the OS and SDHC and similar to store the files/data.

Thanks for any information you can provide!


Black Mini 9, 1GM memory, 16 GB SSD, Ubuntu, MMD 8 cell battery, no camera, no integral Bluetooth

I ordered the 8GB ssd. It was partitioned to use only 4GB of the drive and the rest was unformatted. It had 800MB free on the linux partition, and then 3.5GB on the remainder of the drive.

I used a live USB ubuntu drive I made to resize my drive to be the full 8GB and I now have ~3.5GB free.

I would have to guess they use the same image regardless of drive size, so a 4GB drive would have ~800MB free.
