Dell have released an updated version of their Mini 10 in the form of the Dell Mini 10v. The Mini 10v or 1011 / “Bear” as it was named a few months back has been added to the Dell site with a anticipated release date of mid May.
The new Dell Inspiron Mini 10v replaces the Z-series Intel Atom CPU for the more netbook common Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz CPU, and adds Ubuntu operating system options. A 160GB 5500RPM SATA HDD comes as standard, with a 32GB SSD, and 64GD SSD options for $75, and $125 extra.
The best news is the price, with a starting price of just $299. The Dell Mini 10v also comes with 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 1.3megapixel webcam, a 10.1inch LCD with 1366×768 resolution, 802.11b/g WiFi, with 802.11n at $25 extra.
Available in six different colors, and six different “sticker” finishes. The Mini 10 is highly rated, with a great price, decent screen and impressive keyboard. And now with the lower starting price, and Ubuntu, the Mini 10v is a great buy.
