    Dell Inspiron 910 Owners Thread

    Figured I'd start one now and avoid the rush

    I recently ordered one of these, the black Ubuntu one with a RAM upgrade to 1 GB and a 0.3 MP webcam. I kept the 4 GB SSD because I won't be needing storage space and I have flash drives if I must.

    I can't wait for it, although I must, therefore I will.

    I'll give more information once I get it, and I expect you to do the same (but not if you get yours before I get mine)

    Here is the review!: http://laroza77.blogspot.com/2008/10...ll-9-mini.html

    I hear from reliable...gossip, that they run great. I don't see how they could have any major problems. At the end of the day it is a small computer with an architecture on which Linux works well.

    I was holding back until I realised it isn't ah iPhone (or iAnything) and basically nothing physically new.

    that is what i am waiting on. i will be getting the exact same config as laroza.
    Thanks, fan

    You can get a better webcam 1.3 MP, and upgrade the SSD and get it in white (white doesn't cost extra)

    .3 is fine... i am buying it for what it is, not what some people want to think it is. i am undecided on the color.

    +1 I got it because it was cheap and I couldn't resist (not because I think I will use it, besides for messy around)

    About the colour, it is a hard choice, but unlike many choices, it is a black and white issue.

    Black PWNS. Don't want it to be mistaken for some Apple product.

    I want one...an ultra portable laptop would be nice.

    I'll probably get the 8GB with Ubuntu on it...and probably Bluetooth too.

    White, or black? Hmmm...

    I ended up picking the white, because black tends to be a fingerprint magnet. I have a black Nintendo DS and I constantly have to wipe fingerprints off of it. I am hoping the white is better.
