Mini 9

Managed to snag a good deal for a Dell Mini 9. It comes with a solid state disk and 3G card. The only problem with it is that I’m so far unable to connect to Maxis with it. It does however register with the Maxis UMTS network. Of course it’s quite clear that Maxis sucks to some extent. I, however, did not know that their customer service (and technical support) people are that incompetent. Anyways, after about 6 calls and talking and explaining that my 3G Connect card (by Option NV) works fine but the Dell 5530 HSPA WWAN adapter doesn’t connect me to their super-fantastic, ultra-high speed (100% sarcasm) broadband network, they finally resolve to tell me to pay a visit to their Maxis center in KLCC or Gardens Mid-valley. Oh joy! I’ll end up going tomorrow to Gardens Mid-valley since I’ve to do lunch anyways with a client there. DiGi – the smarter choice is beginning to sound like the better choice (or even Celcom).
