Dell has come out with yet another Inspiron notebook to add to their very large line of laptops. This time around it is the Dell Inspiron Mini 12. It is very similar to Dell’s Inspiron Mini 9 except it comes with a 12 inch screen instead of a 9 inch and it also comes with a much needed performance upgrade.
Here is a quick spec list:
Price: $549 (recommended config $600 )
Screen Size: 12 inches (1280 x 800)
Intel Atom Processor 1.33GHz
3 Cell Battery (3 Hours of Life) *Also a 6 cell Upgrade
40GB PATA Hard Drive (4200RPM)
1 GB DDR2 RAM 533MHz
Vista Operating System
As you can see the specs are not too great, but they are pretty good for a budget portable laptop. The laptop makes up for the specs by offering a very reasonable price tag of only $500 and it comes with a larger keyboard than most mini netbooks. The notebook is also very portable. Weighing in at only 2.72 pounds and being only .92 inches thick makes this netbook compete with rivals in both weight and thickness. This notebook is perfect for any business person on the go that wants a notebook that’s not too big to carry around easily, but not so small that it is difficult type on. I feel that with the Inspiron Mini 12, Dell has finally found a sweet spot between the Inspiron Mini 9 and their normal sized Inspiron Laptops.
