JGF Enters A New Relationship (With Dell)

UPDATE: I sent this post to Dell's "Chief Blogger" (what a title?!) and they included it in a post on their main blog today. Sweet, the Dell people and their loyal legions now know me as you people do, Jack The Blogging Bartender. Now where my free software at bitches???

My blogging output, writing and overall awesomeness just got more, umm, awesomer (okay so the writing has yet to improve). I just purchased the new Dell Inspiron Mini 9:







So I starting thinking about this last week after Hugh over at Gaping Void reviewed it. I did some research and then I did a little more research, even going as far to map out the exact size of the Mini on a sheet of paper to see if my giant manhands could type on it. After going to the ends of the internet to read reviews, I made my decision.

I needed a machine that would allow me to write, blog, and web surf, nothing more, nothing less. I also needed something that was highly portable. I don't need to make movies or download a shit ton of music or porn (I have enough to last me until 2012 last I checked), I just need a reliable machine to type on. The Dell Mini is my guy and even after I added some cool features as I "built" my labtop at Dell.com, the price was still a whisker below 500$

You thought I was a blogging douche before? Just wait...

All right dude, how much are they paying you?

Nice pick. Part of my job is reviewing these things, and this is a pretty good one. Screen's a little small, though. Did you check out the HP Mini 1000?

SSS- I didn't check out the hp, although I spent some time looking at the Acer. In the end the reliability of the DELL, multiple (hundreds) of glowing reviews and the price point sold me on the Mini Inspiron 9.

Anasi- I wish I had a large enough readership to get free software. Can you send this post to Dell? Maybe there's still a chance....

Has Dell's tech support average help time gone below an hour yet?
