>> Dan Ackeman: Hi I'm Dan Ackeman and we are here with the Dell Mini 10 V. Now the V I assume stands for value because this is one of the least expensive net books out there starting at 299 and you know what for that price you manage to get something that looks and feels a lot like Dells more expensive regular mini 10, the non-v version. One of the main differences you're gonna see is the screen is just a regular old inset screen. It doesn't have that cool edge to edge glass and there are no fancy extras like an HDMI port, or a TV tuner, or a mobile broadband options but what you do get is a fairly standard set of net book components; Intel 270 Atom processor a giga ram, a 120 gig hard drive to start instead of the usual 160 but that's ok. You still get the same basic chassis with the wide flat key keyboard that's pretty easy to use and the same kind of widescreen style touchpad. So if you're looking to get a net book and not spend a lot of money but need to be at least basically useful. [ Background music ]
>> It's hard to do a heck of a lot better than the Dell Mini 10 V.
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.
The Satellite A65-S126 offers some decent features at a rock-bottom cost, but you pay the price on performance and battery life.
The 46-inch WinBook 46D1 produces a surprisingly decent picture, despite its rock-bottom price.
The hallmark of Vizio's VO320E isn't "Eco," as the name implies--it's decent picture quality for a rock-bottom price.
Those looking for an entry-level phone at a rock-bottom price should consider the ZTE Salute.
Great call quality and a rock-bottom price make the Samsung Chrono a bargain for those who want just the essentials.
The TravelMate 2355LCi has enough power for basic productivity work, and you can't beat its rock-bottom price--but its battery life is well below average.
The ViewSonic VX2450wm-LED is a thin LED monitor with pretty good performance and a rock-bottom price.
You can find a faster all-in-one from Lenovo for just a few more dollars, but as a general-purpose system with a strong home entertainment bend, the Dell Inspiron One 2320 is hard to beat.
Dell's popular Mini 10 is the most customizable Netbook we've seen. Adding extras such as a higher-resolution screen makes it more useful, but also blurs the price line between Netbooks and mainstream laptops.
