The first thing I did was install Ubuntu 8.10. Ubuntu works flawlessly on the Mini 1000 without any special tweaks or proprietary drivers (though Ubuntu offers them).

One of the display hinges was broken, i had to unscrew the complete thing to replace it, including the glued display frame.
This thing is so fragile.. i would call it "arrogant engineering", as every single part tells you that you have no chance to remove it.
What a contrast to my thinkpad, it’s designed to be easily repaired with little effort.
