Dell's Ubuntu Mini 9 gets more storage and memory

Windows XP version still restricted


The guys
over at NetbookNews.it have noticed that Dell's Ubuntu based Mini 9 netbook can now be equipped with a 64GB solid state drive and up to 2GB of memory.

Unlike the Windows XP version of Dell's Mini 9 which is rather crippled and limited to 16GB/160GB and 1GB of memory options, the Ubuntu Dell Mini 9 can now be upgraded to 2GB of memory and up to 64GB of solid state drive capacity. The new features will of course lift the price tag to over US $500 but it is nice to know that you at least can go for it.

Something tells us that Dell's Ubuntu version of Mini 9 will have a great sales future, and we can only hope that the "great" Microsoft will soon get rid of those draconic netbook limitations soon.
