Dell's Inspiron Mini series gets a bit bigger: the Mini 12

Laptops / Notebooks


Dell seems quite content to put its new 12.1-inch screen computer in the Inspiron Mini category, even though there are plenty of standard notebook computers with similar sized screens.

An upgrade in size and specs from last month’s Mini 9, it features an Atom Z520 running 1.33GHz or Z530 at 1.6GHz, 1GB of RAM, 60GB hard drive, and Vista Home Basic operating system.

The Mini 12 measures just 1.09 inches at its thickest part (0.92″ at its thinness), and comes with the standard wireless connections.

Sadly, it’s only available in Japan at present, but will arrive in the US next month for around $$600. It’s fairly safe to say it’ll make its way to the UK in due course, price hike included.
