im trying to decide if i should go for it...
i did a mini 9 for my SO, she loves it.
where did you get it from and for how much?
theres an amazing deal on lenovo s10 netbooks with a 160gb drive and finally a 6 cell battery on slickdeals.net for $299
i don't know about compatibility with osx though. msi wind was the king of that, not sure what the new hotness is...maybe asus 1000he?
got it from dell for $199 on a dell deal day. after i got it i put in a 2gb dimm, swapped out to a 16gb SSD and installed. all together cost under $300
i had one and couldnt handle it.
it was TOO small. the keyboard was incredibly hard for me to type on.
i went with a hp mini, 10" screen and bigger keyboard and i love it.
os x was an easy install too.
are you talking about the mini 9?
do you have any experience with the mini 10?
im thinking of getting the cheapest one they have (the linux one) and putting win7 rc on it
I've got 2 Mini 9's, one running OSX and the other W7.
Both have 2GB & 64GB SSD's and are very snappy. The OS's really make the most of the hardware.
My S10 won't run OSX very well... it's not stable. Runs W7 great though
Not a Dell Mini, but a Compaq (HP) Mini. Scored it in a Sprint/Best Buy promotion a couple of months ago for a whopping $9.08 out the door. Got OSX to play nicely on it. Didn't have to swap out the wireless card like on the Wind. In total with a ram upgrade, nice little case, 16gb usb drive, 16gb sd card, I've probably got $100 into it now. It does only have a 16gb ssd. Once flash drives become more reliable and lower priced, I'll swap it out for a larger one.
i would love a mini 9 but i never caught them at a great deal
My brother just got a Mini 10v. It's pretty nice, although not for one's ONLY computer.... it's good for a secondary/mobile one. Although Atom really is slow compared to dual core/quad core so if you're used to being speedy, a netbook is a kick in the pants.
