Is the Mini 12 Netbook from Dell the largest available with a note-book-sized 12-inch display? The answer is yes, but so what and what’s next?
Netbooks, those small to medium sized, light-weight, low-cost, energy-efficient laptops, generally optimized for web browsing and e-mailing have sort of taken the world by storm, but its only drizzling when it comes to performance from the Dell Inspiron Mini 12 Netbook.
According to Laptop Magazine, this sleek netbook is quite good looking, measuring less than one-inch thick and weighing only 3 pounds with the six-cell battery included. The keyboard is very cool, the touchpad is spacious, and the 1280 x 800 glossy screen is vivid (to say the least). Beyond that, however, there isn’t much to say except that performance is slow due to the fact that this netbook runs Windows Vista Home Basic as well as a pre-installed virus on just one lonely gigabyte of RAM.
Were the people at Dell drinking? It must have been potent stuff if that was the case, because in addition, the one gig is not upgradeable.
So, let’s have another drink maybe, but a Dell Mini 12 Netbook, no thanks.
