Summary: I was looking for a portable one mainly for travel.and it was perfect for that purpose.It also was a good one for the dining table,when needed in a hurry,because it did not take much space.Unlike an I phone that could not be displayed to the others at the table, (for being too small),this computer could be small enough ,yet could be observed without people having to move out of their chair space.It facilitated conversation,and worked as a visual aid.
Summary: I've had the Mini 9 3 years, I use it for travel, vacations, not business, I love it. I can do stuff on the internet, stream my chicago classical music station on the road and upload travel videos to youtube with the multi-card slot. It boots up fast with the 16GB SSD and is quiet as a tomb. I hope this little bugger lasts forever! It's small, cute and smart, just need a mouse, i hate touch pads!
Summary: Same problem as others have mentioned here, died and can't reload operating system. Of course, two years out of warranty. Main purpose for buying was the SSD and my motorcycle travels. Felt without a regular HD, I'd be safe. Was for two years, and it worked great during that time, but now it's useless, unless I want to spend big $$ to get it fixed, and it's probably not the hard drive giving the problem.
