    I'm looking for a much larger screen than 9".

    Is there such a critter out there?

    I run Linux, of course.

    On Dells German Website I can only find the Mini 9 and Mini 12 (Interesting: it's called to have an GMA500 in the tech details?!) with Ubuntu - no big Notebooks, no Desktops any more. Am I only to stupid to find them?

    It's available in several countries in Europe too.

    And it's a nice machine. We have maybe 6 or 7 of them in the company, and it's a great performance/price value. 8Gb SSD with Ubuntu, working fast, booting fast, no noise, good battery life (almost 5 hours) with a great weight (1kg). And we chose it because they didn't choose an exotic linux distro with some locks. Sure, the LPIA version of Ubuntu is only for Hardy, and all packages are not available. But we customized it with a Cherokee web server and couples of other things, it was really easy and without hacking stuffs.

    And the 10" version is said to have Ubuntu soon. However I have some concerns about the battery, currently it's only a 3 cells, the 6 cells should arrive soon, but the weight will also increase. Dell will also announce a professional 10" soon, I'm curious to see this model. Until then, we are sticking with this 9".

    Indeed, but there is still hope Intel will fix this situation in the future.

    I hope NVIDIA ION plays well, too.
    Uhm, isn't this a netbook with 4Gb of solid state hard drive. After the OS how much room is left for 720p video?

    Actually, the article is incorrect on one thing - the mini9 ships with both evince and adobe pdf readers, and you can choose which to use. Additionally, you have to agree to an adobe licence agreement before you can use it. I chose to uninstall adobe.
