Dell’s updating their list of fashionably stylish netbooks again. The newest addition to the family is the limited edition Deanna Cheuk Inspiron Mini netbook. The netbook will have a 10.1″ screen display with 1024×600 resolution, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, an Intel GMA 500 graphics chipset, 1 GB of DDR2 RAM, a 160 GB SATA hard drive, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, and HDMI output. It’ll also come with the Windows 7 Starter Edition OS and a 3-cell lithium ion battery.
There’ll only be 5250 units of the Deanna Cheuk netbook available, and they’ll each be individually numbered. They’ll be exclusively sold at Best Buy stores with a price tag of $379.99 – it’s no Black Friday deal, but it’s considerably cheaper than some other versions of the Dell Inspiron Mini netbooks. If you’re interested, be sure to get yours before they all sell out.
Sprint has just recently announced that it will be getting in on the netbook action and will be starting off with the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook. According to Kevin Packingham, the senior vice president of Product Development at Sprint, the “Dell Inspiron Mini 10 is a fun way to easily access the speeds of Sprint’s network to catch-up on e-mail, surf the Web and more.”
Features of the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook include a 10.1″ screen display with 1024×600 resolution, an Intel Atom Z520 processor, Integrated Intel 500 Media Accelerator graphics, a 160 GB hard drive, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi (802.11g), Microsoft Windows Home XP (SP3), and a 1.3 megapixel webcam.
With a two-year contract, the Dell Mini 10 netbook would cost $199.99, after a $100 mail in rebate.
- Comments Off on Dell Retires Inspiron Mini 12 Netbook
Have you recently heard rumors that Dell is doing away with its Inspiron Mini 12 netbook? Well, sadly (or maybe not?), those rumors are the truth. Dell has decided that it’s time to retire the Mini 12.
According to Dell.com, the company has decided to retire this netbook partly because “for a lot of customers, 10-inch displays are the sweet spot for netbooks.” Dell currently offers two versions of its 10″ Inspiron netbook – the Mini 10 and the Mini 10v.
As a side note, the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 is available again on Dell’s website, but it’s currently uncertain how long it will be available. If you want one, make sure to order it here before they’re gone.
Taking advantage of the popularity of netbooks, AT&T is expanding their selection of 3G netbooks that are available to consumers. Beginning shortly, AT&T will be selling the following netbooks for $199.99 each (with a two-year data plan and after a mail-in rebate): the Acer Aspire One, Dell Inspiron Mini 10, and Lenovo S10.
Each of these netbooks will weigh less than 2.9 pounds, have 1 GB of RAM and 160 GB hard drives, be equipped with the Microsoft Windows XP Home OS, and have built-in webcams.
These new AT&T netbooks will be offered nationwide both through retail and online channels.
As for data plans, AT&T’s service will cost $40 per month for a 200MB plan and $60 per month for a 5 GB plan. If you think shelling out $60 is too much, you can also consider going with a cheaper plan and making more use of Wi-Fi Internet spots, such as Starbucks coffee shops.
Disclaimer: For AT&T customers that cancel their two-year contracts after enrolling in the service for at least 30 days, there will be an early termination fee of up to $175.
In addition to the new color scheme, the Dell Mini 10 netbook now comes with an internal TV tuner as well. This week only, the Mini 10 has a $749 special that includes a built-in digital TV tuner card. This feature is rumored to be optional after the weekly special expires.
While the current color offerings do not cost extra, customized designs and patterns will. $145 extra, in fact. Two designs that the Dell Mini 10 can come in are shown below. They were designed by ‘urban artist’ Tristan Eaton. The first one is called The Muse.
Are the new features really worth their price tags?
In mid-May, Dell will be releasing its newest netbook – the Dell Inspiron MIni 10v. Coming with this netbook will be a different processor than the one on with previous Dell Mini netbooks, as well as a new price tag. The Dell Mini 10v will have an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor and be priced starting at $299 ($100 less than the Dell Inspiron Mini 10).
The 10v will also come with two new solid state drive options. These netbooks can be upgraded with 32 GB or 64 GB solid state drives, for an additional $75 and $125, respectively. (The standard drive that will come with the Mini 10v is a 160 GB 5,400 rpm SATA drive.)
