Tech Tuesdays on Empty Streets: Dell Mini 9 Netbook

Posted 5:08 AM by Unknown in Labels: ,
Dell has finally joined the band wagon of netbook makers and have released their version late this year called the Dell Inspiron Mini 9. A lot of Dell fanatics have been looking forward to what their favorite Dell brand had to offer and so far it has in more ways kept upto par with what is already being sold in the market - which to my point of view is a little too late though.

Here are the specifications of the Dell Inspiron Mini 9
  • 1.6GHz N270 Intel Atom Processor
  • 1GB DDR2 533MHz (1 DIMM)
  • Ubuntu 8.04 Linux with Custom Dell Interface (Includes Open Office) or XP
  • 8.9" 1024 x 600 WSVGA glossy LED backlit display
  • 16GB miniPCI SSD card
  • Intel GMA 950 Integrated Graphics
  • 802.11b/g Wi-Fi
  • 4-in-1 Media card reader
  • 1.3 Megapixel webcam, Dell Video Chat application, Dell Support Center
  • 4-Cell 32Wh Li-ion battery (14.8V)
  • Size: 9.2" x 6.8" x 1.3" (including feet)
  • Weight: 2lb 5.5oz (with 4-cell battery), 2lb 11.6oz (with battery and AC adapter)
Not bad as most people would say as it does offer a lot more in terms of what substandard Mini Netbooks have to offer but only had it been released a bit earlier. I say it is a bit late due to the main fact say for example just the memory internally is a 16Gb SSD while the others such as MSI Wind, ACER Aspire One, Lenovo, and HP have release 160GB up version of the netbook with roughly the same pricing or close to it of approximately around $400.

In terms of design and appeal it does have it's plus factors there though positioning the Function keys to be integrated with the regular keys and trying very hard to squeeze everything in could prove to be a blessing or a pain.

Overall since I prefer function over aesthetics sometimes, I would give this Dell Inspiron Mini a Total Gadget Grade Point Average of 7.5.
