No more MINI 9's for sale at Dell (suggestions) - June 3, 2009, 08:48 AM

Ok so my brother wants a Dell MINI 9 before he goes to college with MAC OSX.

I just checked Dell's site today and now they dont let you order one.

So what are my options? There are a bunch of certified refurbished ones for sale..

I guess ebay.

Can you load up OSX on the MINI 10?

Where can i order the 32GB drive for the MINI?

Your help is much appreciated..

Also check out the MSI Wind.

Slightly bigger, 10.2" screen, but comes with a 160 gig HDD versus the SSD drive stuff
