Impressive review of the Mini 9 - compares it with ASUS and Macbook Air:

The review says it comes with Ubuntu for "$349".
Dell.com.au says: $599 + delivery ($49?) and Win XP SP3 :-(

And interesting viewpoint in the review:

"all things you could just as easily do on a smartphone - but it's
easier to do on a netbook.

"The netbook market exists because the perfect notebook/smartphone
device hasn't been made yet.
