"Yes, the Mini 9 netbooks are the same price, but
Windows XP customers at Best Buy are getting a far better deal than
Dell's online Ubuntu customers. At Best Buy, Dell's $299 Windows XP
netbook comes with a Webcam and microphone plus twice the memory
(1GB) and twice the storage (8GB) compared to the Ubuntu system
that Dell is selling direct online.
"So much for a level playing field between Windows XP and Ubuntu
on Dell netbooks."
