I bought a Mini 10 (may have been 'v', not sure), which was listed in the
tech specs as being available with options for Ubuntu and an SSD. Neither
were listed when I tried to buy online. It took several emails before I
got a quote for a machine with Ubuntu. I didn't bother trying to look for
and SSD. So yes, they do sell them, but you've got to go out of your way
to get it.
Out of interest, I've been running 9.04 on it for several months without
any problems The only issue was the video driver, which I had to track
down myself. Everything else worked without any trouble.
