Liven up your school backpack with this 10" netbook that weighs only 2.5lb with up to 160 gigs of storage, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and more. Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn find out if this Inspiron Mini 10v is worth the $300.

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.

Price

  • 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 money.
  • Otherwise, the Lenovo S10-2 or Toshiba NB205 are better choices.
