Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Announced

Finally, Dell responded to critics who say that Inspiron Mini 9 is too small while Inspiron Mini 12 is no-netbook-at-all by announcing Dell Inspiron Mini 10.

Being in the middle isn't always bad! Based on the photo, Mini 10 is definitely going to be better than its predecessors in at least 2 aspects: The Keyboard and The Touchpad. Mini 9, due to its size, has an understandably cramped keyboard and small trackpad. Dell, however, didn't do any better with the ginormous Mini 12 -- its keyboard is still cramped and its trackpad a tad small for the netbook's overall built. It's good that Dell noted and corrected these earlier shortcomings in designing the Mini 10.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 will be available for online purchase in March. For only $399 or around Php 18,000, Dell will ship the netbook with these specs:
