First Look at the Dell Inspiron Mini Mini-Notebook

  • MORE
An Eee PC killer is on the loose! Hide your Eee PC 4Gs, 900s, and even the 901s! Gizmodo's Brian Lam caught a glimpse of a hot red Dell Mini Inspiron. Personally, I am more interested in how Lam just "bumped into" Michael Dell, but here is what was revealed of Dell's mini-notebook. The system has 3 USB ports, a card reader, VGA out, Ethernet, and a "red candy shell". From the looks of the pictures it has a decent-size keyboard and a trackpad with two mouse buttons below it. No word on the pricing, CPU, memory, or even the hard drive. Will you wait for the Dell Inspiron mini-notebook? Surely you'll reconsider after reading about the RazorBook, but what about the MSI Wind or the rumored Eee PC 1000? Still waiting? Update: Dell released some offical photos of the mini-notebook, which we have for you below. No sign yet of specs.

    The thing about this laptop is most likely be similar if not cheaper than asus
    and the keyboard look like it is the same size as the hp.
    larger keyboard + price(maybe cheaper) = worth the wait

    I think the price would be around $500, and I just wish Mac would do something like this. 8.9 with OSX for $500. MacbookAir just... but I am okay with $500 Dell with Linux.

    People will wait because it says "Dell" on it. They haven't shown me enough to warrant waiting for it. Maybe if they released full specs as well as a release date I would consider it. But I'm sure I'm not the only one that will be buying the MSI Wind or Eee 901 come June 3rd. MSI has done a decent job of getting their product out there on the internet to the people who would most likely consider buying it. They got me. I find it very hard to believe that Dell will be able to top what MSI is offering with the Wind.

    Dell needs to really open their eyes and realize that if they want to hold off people buying from the competition that they're going to have to wet out appetite with a little more than speculation and a few pictures. They have five days to figure out how to get me, because my order for the Wind gets placed as soon as it's available.

    I see my No is out-voted by a 3-to-1 margin.

    Why wait?

    From what I can see, it looks pretty basic. Do people think the price will be lower than other units that have similar specs?

    Or is there some sort of appeal to the Dell brand that I'm missing?

    Or is it the red? Is that it? The red?
