Last week I had to order a few new computer for my office. One of the staff was getting a laptop and Dell had a deal to get an Inspiron Mini for just $100. Couldn't pass that one up. I am going to pay my office for the mini to use at home. This will be my Girl Scout computer and my computer to surf the internet.
I also purchased two of the Dell Vostro's all in one computers for two other staff members. Before I placed the order I had discussed what they needed or wanted and both were okay with the all in one. I had spoken to them about two weeks before I actually placed the order. I let the three staff members know I had ordered their machines and then I here from one of them that she wanted a laptop instead of the all in one. When did this happen and why didn't you talk to me when you decided you wanted the laptop. Now I have to send one computer back.
The mini computer is kind of cool, the key board is only a little smaller then my Latitude 6500 laptop. I am not too crazy about the touch pad - it has the buttons built into it, so I have a wireless mouse I am using. It came with Windows 7 Starter. With this version of Win 7 you cannot change the background image -- what the heck were they thinking. I did find several fixes on line. We have another person at my office, who is very anti-mini she thinks they are very glitchy. I don't know, we will have to see how this one preformed.
