I think the bigger issue might be getting 64 bit drivers and utils for the 1012 from dell.

I was thinking more that my days of conventional drives are over.......tired of failures, clicking, APM problems, and moving parts!.....but cheap is cheap

Ditto that! I am looking into ssd's for my main workstation. if they just weren't so expensive. Would be nice to have very low chance of failure and no possibility of moving part failure. For a netbook it only makes sense from a durability perspective.

I will comment that I have seen many more reports, proportionally, of SSD failure than I have of hard disk failure. That said, I agree that SSD is the way to go if you can afford it.

What is this, it seems we all agree on something. When SSD's get down to about $1 per Gig I won't own another conventional drive.....wonder how long that will take?

Hey all, I just got a mini 10 1012 and is looking to upgrade the RAM to 2GB. Where can you access the RAM slot without taking everything apart like the old Mini 10 1010?

Where is mentioned user accessible slot, cant seem to find it anywhere online Documentation?

Thanks for the help.

I believe it will be under the keyboard - you will need to remove three screws from the laptop base and then prise up the keyboard - you should see a SODIMM slot with the existing 1GB ram stick.

hey thanks for that, I thought there was a like a compartment/slot where u just unscrew the cover and pop in the RAM, like at the bottom of most notebooks. Hmmmm looks like its still the same as old Mini 10, except the RAM is not burried as deep

Please confirm for us if you get a chance - a couple of pictures would be good as well!
