It doesn't appear that the Mini 9 is selling in huge numbers. It could
be that the SSD is small, but that is a bonus as far as battery life
and speed.  It would be nice if the Mini 9 came with a $20 a month
broadband plan.  A lot of people complain that about keys being in
different places.  And, I don't think that WinXP runs all too fast
and is limited to 1 Gig of ram. Under Ubuntu, you can put 2 Gigs. Or,
if you have an actual WinXP license, you can use that and put in 2 Gigs.

I did use the Mini 9 for editing part of my Master's Project proposal
which has been accepted.
