I've had this mini 10 for about 5 or 6 years now. I bought it to take on some trips for work and I didn't want to carry that 15.4" screen laptop. I got it with Ubuntu on it and have since put several other Linux distributions on it. Most recently I installed Linux Mint 16 and it's still working great.

These are great little machines and well worth the price.

I now have three of these machines with another one coming in the post.

My first purchase was a Mini 1010 and then came the Mini 1018 and more recently a Mini 1012. I have another 1018 coming in the mail. I don't like the pink colour of the one I have.

Of all the machines I like the 1012 the best. It is the best optioned with two mini pci express slots. I intend to install a Broadcom BCM 70015 card in it.

I don't know whether to update the screen to the higher resolution 1366x768 or not.
