Remember yesterday when I told you how Dave Marples placed an order for a Dell Inspiron Mini 9 on Thursday and it was delivered by Friday afternoon? Well, he sent in a few photos to show off his new toy productivity machine.
There appear to be a couple of items that contributed to this case of super-fast shipping. First, Marples is in the UK. Second, he ordered a Windows XP model. Dell is not shipping the Linux version in the US yet and doesn’t appear to be even offering it outside of the US.
Some Liliputing readers who ordered an Inspiron Mini 9 with a 16GB SSD say their computers are already beginning to ship, while customers who ordered the 8GB version are still waiting. I’m not sure if there are enough reports out there to call this a trend.
But while if you’re still waiting for your Dell Mini to arrive (or even if you’re not), you can check out some more pictures from Dave Marples after the jump.
