Check out the full review from Attack of the Show after the cut.
What You Need To Know
- The Inspiron Mini is larger than the Lenovo S10-2 netbook but smaller than the Toshiba NB205.
- The battery protrudes a lot from the bottom. It comes in different colors.
- The full-size keyboard is the best we've seen all week, and almost all the keys are full size.
- The touchpad is exactly the opposite: the buttons are built in like the new MacBooks but it's hard to use with two hands. It's better to use only one hand or an external mouse.
- The performance got the lowest PCMark05 scores of the week. It can still launch applications well and keep up with other netbooks but it's still a little below average.
- The problem could be all the pre-installed software or slower RAM.
- Starts at $300.00 and the netbook we reviewed was $374.
- This isn’t worth the money but go for it if you don't want to spend too much.
- Otherwise, the Lenovo S10-2 or Toshiba NB205 are better choices.
