Re: Dell Inspiron Mini 12 Officially the Biggest Netbook on the Block

Dell has a brand new netbook for the masses in the form of the Mini 12 - a slightly larger sibling compared to the Mini 9. It is available in Japan only at this point in time, although a global launch is set to follow later this November with prices starting from a shade under $600 upwards, depending on the configuration you choose. You can opt for Ubuntu or Windows XP as the operating system of choice, and among the features include :-
  • 1GB RAM
  • 60GB/80GB hard drive
  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Integrated webcam
  • 12.1" WXGA display

Re: Dell Inspiron Mini 12 Officially the Biggest Netbook on the Block

Under the hood, it's a standard netbook kit?1.6GHz Atom (though the more energy efficient next-gen one that lets it live for up to three hours on a 3-cell battery), smallish 40, 60 or 80GB hard drive, not a whole lotta RAM?though you've got a full-sized keyboard and 1280x800 12-inch screen. Unfortunately, it's only available with Vista at launch
