Ever since it’s announcement at CES, the Dell Mini 10 has had a lot of attention on it, and now finally some real details have slipped out about the highly anticipated Mini 10 netbook.
With a much nicer design than the Mini 9, and seeming to be the perfect size between the Mini 12 and the Mini 9. The Dell Mini 10 will have a true wide screen display of 16:9 ratio, available in two resolutions, WSVGA 1024 x 576, and 720p HD 1366 x 768, stretching the full distance of the netbook, with very little wasted bezel area.
Powered by a choice of 1.3 GHz or 1.6GHz Intel Atom silverthorn processors with a further choice of either a 3-cell or 6-cell battery, lasting 3-4 hours, and 6-8 hours respectively. The Mini 10 also has a very nice, full sized keyboard, also stretching the full distance of the netbook, and a multi-touch touchpad with gesture control.
Available with a 120Gb or 160Gb HHD, with 1-2 GB DDR2 RAM, along with 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and optional GPS, TV Tuner and DVD slice.
With a vast selection of six colors: white, black, red, pink, blue and green. Thin and lightweight at 24mm at the front and weighing just 1.3Kg.
Ports include 3x USB 2.0, 5-in-1 card reader, 2x headphone, mic and HDMI output. The Dell Mini 10 seems like a very attractive netbook with obvious media usages. With a 720p HD screen and HDMI output, I would assume a powerful enough graphics card to handle HDTV support.
Update: the Dell Mini 10 review has now been posted.
