Retailers must hate it when their low-priced Black Friday shopping deals get sniffed out. After all, if you knew a product you were about to purchase might be far cheaper in a few short weeks, might you consider putting the purchase off? I likely would unless it was something I needed immediately.
We’re certain to see more leaked deals in the coming few weeks as we approach the holiday shopping season, so here’s the first: Dell’s Inspiron Mini 9 looks to be $299 come the day after Thanksgiving here in the U.S. My gut says that this will be the low-end model that currently retails for $349, but who knows? That model has the 4GB SSD module along with Ubuntu 8.04 installed and 512 MB of RAM. I was able to get XP on the 4GB storage of my original Asus Eee PC, so that could be an option for folks that don’t carry much local data.
