Inspiron Mini 9, OMG I Want One

Posted by at 10:36 am on September 4, 2008

Today  Dell  officially unveiled the Inspiron Mini 9.   The Inspiron Mini is an affordable Internet companion that can be fine-tuned to fit users’ specific needs. OMG, I want one!!
 
The Inspiron Mini has a starting weight of 2.28 lbs, with sealed keyboard and reliable solid state drive (SSD) memory storage. A bright 8.9-inch glossy LED display (1024×600) presents most web pages with no left-right scrolling, and the keypads are large and easy to navigate. Standard built-in Wi-Fi allows wireless internet access to hotspots. The Inspiron Mini can be further customized with optional technology like a built in webcam and bluetooth.   Dell is also working with vendors like Timbuk2 to provide cases and bags for the Inspiron Mini.
 
Dell has teamed up with Box.net to offer exclusive web-based file storage, access and sharing to Inspiron Mini users, including a free Basic plan with 2GB of remote storage space, expandable to 25GB. Dell’s Inspiron Mini will include a direct link to a Dell-exclusive home page on Box.net  providing users with a way to add incremental online storage space. Individuals can safely and securely upload files of any type to their Box, including photos, videos, music, documents and presentations, and then access those files from almost anywhere on any device.  
 
With these options the Mini should be a real draw for people like me who want their portable for lightweight tasks like e-mail and browsing, but also want a larger keyboard and screen than those found on cell phones.   The mini is also a great size to fit in a purse, so no need to carry an extra bag.
 
Individuals can personalize their Inspiron Mini with choice of colors – Obsidian Black or Alpine White – and interaction experience – optional Windows XP or Ubuntu 8.04 with custom Dell interface . For those looking for a more traditional and familiar experience, the Inspiron Mini with Windows XP Home is available immediately starting at $399.   Inspiron Mini devices featuring an intuitive Dell-developed custom interface are expected to be available in a few weeks with a starting price of $349, and it has just made it to the top of my want list.
