    NetBook Dell Inspiron Mini 9 (Inspiron 910)

    The Inspiron Mini 9 opens the way to the XPS M1530 without latch with two tinges stronger end closing in order to keep the lid closed. Maximum opening of about 125-130 ° to the naked eye (against 140-145 ° for the XPS M1530), this small NETBOOK black / silver (gray) is equally simple and within the class if it It is a brilliant slab ... Even if we see the Made in China (that reduce costs huh:-p) everywhere, quality manufacturing and finishing are waiting for you like many products of the firm ... It is, indeed, much better than some competitor.

    Unpacking and Bundle of the Inspiron Mini 9 :

    Always fast and efficient by UPS, I must admit that the mini card already received the test result ... We therefore extract the mini NETBOOK, a power supply more compact than the "traditional" brand, a configuration guide and 4 CD (Windows XP Home Edition ULCPC (for Ultra Low Cost PC), Works 9 , Drivers, utilities and software) to put in drive ... uh oops, there is not :-)

    Two things to say so far ... The first is that it would have been nice to have a pocket for this expensive Dell Inspiron Mini 9 so as not to scratch too. Another small criticism is that there are no plans to wind the power cord to the block such as Apple chargers.

    The exterior of the Inspiron Mini 9:

    Dressed in black like the first XPS last generation, the Inspiron Mini 9 Inspiron 910 aka the playing cards sobriety ... its glossy side knows, however, take the top trying to seduce aspiring fashion victims! To be more serious, some stick, others do not ... Personally I prefer a matte shell.


    Its dimensions are not really generous, and it is precisely the goal, with an area of 23 by 17 cm by 16.8 mm thick. The advantage here is that you can carry it wherever you go with an overweight of just 1Kg!

    Blanks of the Inspiron Mini 9 have a fairly standard with connectors on one side, an Ethernet port, VGA output, USB 2.0 as well as input / audio output (headphones and micro), on the other, a card reader Secure Digital (SD) / Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) / MS (Memory Stick) / MS Pro (Memory Stick Pro) / MMC (MultiMedia Card) you can serve, for example, transfer your photos vacation ... Then two USB 2.0 ports, the power connector and the traditional location for security cable (lock). That, ultimately, correct for current use, it will still get used to not having CD and USB key focus.

    The interior of the Inspiron 910

    The Inspiron Mini 9 opens the way to the XPS M1530 without latch with two hinges stronger end closing in order to keep the lid closed. Maximum opening of about 125-130 ° to the naked eye (against 140-145 ° for the XPS M1530), this small NETBOOK black / silver (gray) is equally simple and within the class if it It is a brilliant slab ... Even if we see the Made in China (that reduce costs huh:-p) everywhere, quality manufacturing and finishing are waiting for you like many products of the firm ... It is, indeed, much better than some competitors!


    Thus, we, first, a bright LED slab 8.9 inches with a resolution of 1024 * 600 pixel (WSVGA), at least in my opinion if one wants to have a proper work space (800 * 480 pixels is much too fair). Just above, we have a 1.3 Megapixel camera that allows you to make the video professional or general public (MSN Messenger type ...). Below are two speakers that are in place concerning the logo of the firm.

    Thing that may surprise some, the power button (power) is on the left while a right, it would tend to just go on the right side or in the middle of the laptop.The keyboard of the latest addition to Dell will give you wire before twisting to get used to as you can see. The buttons are on the one hand, much smaller than conventional keyboards with dimensions of 14 * 14mm (15 * 13mm for the Asus EeePC 900) but in addition, a row of keys disappeared blamed a battery consistently. The Fn key will become your friend and keyboard shortcuts (F1 for help, F5 to refresh, etc ...) will be more difficult to use! Damage but not insurmountable, far from it.

    Anyway this Fn key allows you to select mainly shortcuts F1 to F10 (Fn + Q M), pause the machine (Fn + 1), and activate or deactivate the WiFi / Bluetooth (Fn + 2) know the status of the battery (Fn + 3), mute / enable / decrease / increase sound (Fn + 4/4/5/6), make screenshots (Fn + 7), switch on secondary screen (Fn + 8) and reduce / increase the brightness of the screen (Fn + 9 / 0).

    The underside and entrails
    The 4-cell 2260mAh battery (14.8 V - 32Wh) is, thankfully, removable representing a fifth of the weight of this mini laptop. In the removing, we can see a spot for a SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) in order to connect, for example, the Vodafone network.



    Now remove the infamous hatch to access the main elements that concern us ... namely, the SSD (Solid State Drive) 16GB, WiFi Card 802.11b / g and the single memory card 1GB. The first two port Mini PCI-Express, are made by Broadcom and Stec while DDR2 SODIMM is the label of Hynix as well as other manufacturer's laptops. As for the CPU and the chipset, we have not found it helpful to completely dismantle the hull to discover, but be aware that the embedded processor is an Intel Atom N270 (Single Core, 533MHz FSB, 512 KB L2 cache) 1.6GHz with TDP of only 2Watts. As for the chipset, Dell has chosen the Intel i945GME integrating GMA (Graphics Media Accelerator) 950 for the graphics.

    Autonomy of the Inspiron Mini 9
    On paper the Inspiron 910, with a 4 cell 2260mAh battery, should display a suitable autonomy although some expect a 6-cell version for a more comfortable autonomy. To assess this, we created a Windows batch script writing in a time every minute. Once the laptops we carry out the delta between the first and last data taken in order to have that autonomy. Two types of measures have been taken ... in idle and a DivX playback loop with all the brightness of the screen at 100% and with wireless enabled devices.



    Between a hard drive and a SSD, the choice is difficult ... one hand we have the capacity, the other silent. Dell chose the second version with a 16GB sufficient enough to install some software or even store some music / movies. As you can see below, the performance is to go and linear (or almost) with a 61.6 Mb / s average read for an average access time of 0.4 ms. To say it is better than the 200GB 7200trs/min the XPS M1530.

    I bought these for my kids. Having problems with some websites that spawn pop-ups (Webkinz)...you can't scroll down in the pop-up window. Is there a setting (I can't find) to fix this or is it a problem with the minis?

    I think it would be security alerts that has been restricted by your firewall, firewall keeps giving you pop up when you opened any site against its set of rules, generally it happens when there would be flash based images or any images, i don't think Mini has problems with the pop ups.
