Dell Inspiron Mini 9

Product summary

The good:More configurable than other Netbooks; good battery life; XP and Linux OS options.

The bad:Some awkward keyboard compromises; no SSD options larger than 16GB.

The bottom line:Dell's entry into the Netbook market means it's time to take these low-cost, low-power PCs seriously. The Inspiron Mini 9 is an excellent example of the form, if not radically different from the competition.

Specifications:Processor: Intel ® ATOM (1.6 GHz); RAM installed: 512 MB DDR2 SDRAM; Display: 8.9;
