Dell Goes Thin with Adamo

,----[ Quote ]
| In a note last week, Toni Sacconaghi, an analyst at Sanford Bernstein, wrote
| about new paradigm of low-cost computingbased on cheap processors and a
| version of Linux rather than Microsoft Windows operating system. To
| reenforce their point, the analysts built a $250 PC that they say is
| perfectly functional (though its case is a cardboard box).

Microsoft loves competition.

"We should whack them (Dell over Linux dealings), we should make sure they
understand our value."

| Mainly its a question of storage. While the Mini 9 only came with SSD
| storage, in either 4, 8 or 16GB flavours, the Mini 12 only comes with an HDD,
| either 40GB or 80GB, respectively included on the Linux - Ubuntu 8.04 - and
| Windows XP varieties of the netbook.

Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell wants you to believe the Inspiron Mini 9 is "your new best friend."
| Well, kiddies, the Mini 9 is a fantastic mobile companion that helps you stay
| connected and makes your life easier without breaking the bank. However, I
| can't shake the feeling that the Mini 9 is more like "the kid you're friendly
| with at the lunch table, but isn't your BFF."

Dell Inspiron Mini 9 (Linux)

,----[ Quote ]
| Like the Sylvania g Netbook Meso, the Inspiron Mini 9 speakers are below
| the screen on the bottom bezel. They were able to pump out Coldplay Life In
| Technicolor at a surprising volume, and lacked the typical tinniness of other
| small notebooks.
