Dell E(ee PC) specs and price leaked
Uninspired as Dell’s laptop naming system seems to be, we’re getting mighty confused about what Dell’s upcoming Eee PC knock off is actually called. First it was rumoured to be the Mini-Inspiron, then we heard it was going for a more direct parody of the Asus’ wunder-top, the Dell E. Now, apparently, it’s back to being called the Mini-Inspiron. You keeping up?
Anyway, not only is Dell releasing the Eeenspiron fairly shortly, one website appears to have sneaky peak of the specs. It is packing a 1.6GHz Intel Atom, 1GB of RAM, an 8GB SSD and an Intel Express graphics chipset. It also has WiFi and a card reader, and will run a currently unknown version of Linux.
The price is believed to be $299, which is quite disarmingly cheap, and we’d call bollocks if this didn’t tie in with previous rumours. Official release date is still very much up in the air, but there are whispers in the air that it might be as soon as the first half of August.

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. Thanks.

I do not understand what you mean.
It is a middleweight unit, but sized to fit any standard laptop case, along with AC/DC adaptor, mouse, floppy and zip disks, and other accessories. The Dell Latitude C600, CPX, and L400 are the three most popular models in the line.
Its great and i too heard that it also has WiFi and a card reader, and will run a currently unknown version of Linux.
YOu will find a dozen pictures and all the different models of the E and the Slim notebooks here:
I like both the names Dell E and Dell Mini.
Not so crazy about Dell Mini-Inspiron.
