The memory limit of 1GB is a little disappointing, but if the SSD is fast enough, it hopefully won’t matter.

    I went and took a look at the Dell Mini inspiron. Apart from the 1GB memory limit, I am most disappointed that it comes with WinXP Home with no other options. I would normally go for Win XP Professional as all our systems has XP Pro.
