Dell Mini 9 guys who updated the SSD

What did you go with and how much did you pay? I hear you can use a 65 GB SSD but I've really only found the 32 GB SSD's on eBay (haven't really looked anywhere else yet). Post up!

Special...might only be today, not sure... 60GB for $101 after rebate.

Just verify that is the physical size of SSD that the mini uses.

Did you already buy the Mini 9?

If so, how do you like it?

Yup, got it in last week. I'm really digging it because it's light weight (even compared to my 13" MacBook) and pretty compact. It's now doing backpack duty and I barely notice it. Little underpowered but hopefully the 2GB I got in today will make a difference.
