It has just been officially launched in Europe over the last few days, and in said to be making it way to the U.S this Fall.
Dell say the the Dell Inspiron 1018 offers long battery life at an affordable price. It is currently available in the UK from just £279 (equivalent of $434, but will probably be cheaper on U.S release).
Update: The Dell Mini 1018 is now available for purchase in the U.S for just $299!
The Dell Mini 1018 is powered by the 1.66Ghz Intel Atom N455 processor, with 1GB of DDR3 RAM, with a 10.1-inch 1,024 x 600 pixel resolution display, 250GB hard drive, 802.11n WiFi, and runs Windows 7 Starter edition.
In real terms, it looks like the Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 should be looked at as a lower end model to the Mini 1012. As the 1018 doesn’t come with the HD display, or a HD Crystal Broadcom card, or personalization options. It is only available in black only.
But with a nice design (now with real mouse buttons on trackpad) and a n attractive price, the new Dell Mini 1018 should be a popular netbook.
Buy now from Dell UK for £279.
