Default I got mine. What do you want to know? - 01-14-2010, 05:06 PM

Well I've just received my 1012 and it has a white base and a black top. So I suppose if you ordered the white unit it would be all white. It has a 6 cell that fits flush in the bottom so no more handle like the 10v. The port arrangement seems to be just like the 10v. Let me know if there is anything you want to know about it.

If you feel gutsy, remove the keyboard and take a photo of the hard drive/memory slot. Both are supposedly upgradable from there.

Here they are! The keyboard cable makes a 90 degree turn now so it's harder to get in and out. The memory is sure easy now. Where are the Mini PC cards? Anybody seen a service manual to disassemble it further?

Someone mentioned the mini PCI card slots are under the palmrest. Until we get a manual, you might need to pull every screw from the bottom of the unit (and a few from under the keyboard) to release the top from the bottom... I see at least three silver-headed screws in the photo.

Thanks for the photos!

Thanks for the post. Can I suggest a new clamshell pic with NO glare?

How about some pics with the MMC card in the slot to see the "outage".

Thanks

Okay, one with a SD and the other with a Memory Stick. Obviously the blue card is the Memory Stick and the black card is the full size SD card.

That cant be right. Does it REALLY stick out that much with an SD card??

My now majority outdated Mini9 even manages to have a completely flush SD slot. An 8GB card sits in there permanently, but id be afraid to leave one like that.

Seems like Dell just go from bad to worse. The Mini9 actually STILL seems like the best netbook from Dell, if only they kept the 9" form factor and slapped the new Atom in there...

Ive got a question, whatever happened to SSD's in netbooks? Id much rather have a 32gb SSD than a 500gb mechanical hard drive in something thats more than likely going to get slapped around.

That seems to be the current style. Of course, with a 160GB hard disk it would not be as common to leave an SD card in all the time.

Too expensive in reasonable capacities. You can add your own. Notebook hard drives can survive more abuse than you might think, though dropping the netbook on the floor is not recommended.
