Hey Guys

I am brand new to this forum, new to Ubuntu and never had a netbook. So I just decided to jump in head first and to do all this at once :D. My main machine is a macbook and I work with pcs, but had limited exposure to Ubuntu (though loved it)

So now I've ordered that mini and it comes with W7 starter. I def wanna remove starter and would prefer to put UNR 9.10. I'm sure it will work very well, except I'm not sure about Huawei EM770U functionality. Judging by this forum plenty of people seemed to get other Huawei modems to work, so I'm hoping the same will happen to me? It's a pci-e version, so it shouldn't be that different I hope.

It would really be awesome if I could use Ubuntu rather than W7 or XP. I know this is new hardware combo and nobody might know anything, but I'm still throwing it out there. I'm probably not the first or the last that wants to do this.

Cheers!
