>> Dan Akeman: Hi, I'm Dan Akeman and here we are take a look at the Dell Mini 10. Now Dell has had their mini 10 net book out for a little while but this new version packs in some high end extras that are worth taking a look at. First among them is you're gonna notice that the screen which looks very nice under edge to edge glass is a higher resolution display than you're used to seeing in a net book. This is 1366x768 while most 10 inch notebooks are 1024x600. We're starting to see that on a few of the more expensive net books and if you flip it around and look at the back we've got kind of a cool custom pattern on here. Dell has a whole bunch of different ones you can choose from, adds about $40 to the cost over just getting the plain white net book. You know other than that it looks and feels pretty much like a regular net book. You've got Dell's wide key, flat keyboard that's pretty useable. You've also go their kind of almost widescreen touchpad with the 2 buttons built right into the bottom of the touchpad, not really our favorite. You do have some cool high end extras you might miss if you don't take a look. You've got HTMI on this side and there's even a built in TV tuner over here. You plug a little antennae into that we don't find TV tuners to be really all that useful. If you want to spend a little bit more however you can even get integrated mobile broadband depending on who your provider is. So adding all these high end extras you're gonna come pretty close to blowing it out of the net book category. Instead of 299, 399 it's probably going to be closer to 600 bucks which is pretty much regular laptop territory. I'm Dan Akeman and that's the Dell Inspiron Mini 10. ^M00:01:32 [ Music ]
In the relatively new Netbook category, Dell's Inspiron Mini 9 stands out as an excellent example of the form. So much so that it's also our top laptop gift for the 2008 Holiday Gift Guide.
Dell's mainstream consumer laptop, the Inspiron 15R, is an attractively-priced budget computer with a welcome set of up-to-date features and unique swappable lids.
Dell's first release from its new Studio line, the Studio 15, sits between the Inspiron and XPS lines and offers a good mix of features for the price.
An awesome design and a full-fledged feature package make this higher-resolution plasma almost worth its high price.
The I15-157B is a textbook mainstream budget computer, but it lacks some of the extras you'll find in other comparably priced laptops.
For a Netbook with standard components for the category, but a rock-bottom price and decent overall design, it's hard to beat Dell's Mini 10v.
Dell's latest take on the Mini is a dual-core AMD-powered 11-inch system that leaves Netbooks in the dust both in power and price.
Dell introduces the new 14-inch Inspiron 1420 laptop, which benefits from a wide range of configuration options, meaning that virtually any mainstream user can find a system to fit their budget.
Dell Inspiron 531Dell's new Inspiron 531 features a new, streamlined look and a solid set of mainstream features including built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. On some tests, it's even faster than systems that cost $500 more.
For only $20 more than its single-core cousin, the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM's dual-core Atom CPU handles multitasking better, but this Netbook doesn't offer the features or performance we've seen in higher-priced "premium" alternatives.
