Dell Inspiron Mini 12
I am always a big fan of Dell notebooks, because they often surprise me. Now, I mean today, Dell Inspiron Mini 12 is what we are paying close attention on, especially me. So what on earth is Dell Inspiron Mini 12? What kind of of attraction does it have? Now let's take a closer took at Dell Inspiron Mini 12, Dell's new laptop.
The big news from Dell is their new notebook Dell Inspiron Mini 12 is officially announced in Japan today! Rather than use the same 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU as its smaller Inspiron Mini 9 sibling, the Mini 12 has a choice of either a 1.3GHz Atom Z520 or 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor, together with 1GB of RAM and up to 80GB hard-drive. The even better thing is It weighs around 1.2Kg, is under 1in thick and comes with Windows Vista Home Basic, built-in webcam.
The Inspiron Mini 9 — it's pretty much the same as almost every other Netbook out there, but Dell offers more configuration options than most. The new 12-inch version has a few notable differences — the hard drives are traditional 60GB and 80GB platter drives, not the SSD drives found in the Mini 9, and the OS choices have been expanded from XP and Ubuntu Linux to also include Windows Vista Basic. At first, the Mini 12 is only going to be available at select retail outlets in Japan, but it should show up stateside by late November, for under $600. 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.
So what's the top secret of Dell inspiron mini 12 notebook? Here it is, their system is designed for young users or those who want a system with more traditional notebook dimensions but only need the performance of a netbook. This is why so many young people like it so much. What's more, you know, the larger screen size pushes the system outside of Microsoft's official netbook category and so currently pushes Dell to outfit the system with Windows Vista Home Basic rather than the less demanding XP Home. Bluetooth and a webcam are also standard on this system rather than optional, as they are with the Mini 9.
