Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Netbook Computer (Intel Atom Z530, 160GB HDD, 1GB)


Measuring about 14 inches wide, 10.5 inches deep, and 1.5 inches thick, and weighing 6.9 pounds (or 8.2 pounds, with its considerable AC power brick), the Inspiron E1505 is too large and heavy for regular travel. Skirting the line between midsize and...

Comfortable keyboard and touch pad; adequate display; solid collection of basic multimedia features; excellent multimedia controls; wide array of configuration options; competitive base price.

Too heavy for regular travel; lacks a Type II PC Card slot.

The Dell Inspiron E1505 makes a good basic home or small-business laptop and has a solid set of multimedia capabilities, though comparable models can be found at slightly lower price points.

"Exactly what we needed."


People love to come on here and bash Dell, but compared to the Asus, Acer, and the other foreign Netbook makers I find that this machine met our requirements perfectly and at a great price. I highly recommend this machine.

Super long battery life (with 6 cell battery), compact design, fast to load into Windows, great wifi card, crisp and bright screen, works very well for a Netbook

6 cell battery sticks out awkwardly, would prefer if it was a slice. Touchpad takes some getting used to.

"good for basic computing"


basically, it's good for light word processing and web surfing on the go.

small, light,cheap.

the touchpad is kind of stiff. and i had to adjust the dpi a few times so that some programs/menus would fit on the screen.

"Perfect for my needs"


In my opinion:

Surprisingly, I liked the touchpad. Excelent keyboard. Good weight and size. Good battery (for a 3 cell).

Only 1GB RAM.

"Exactly what I bargained for"


I got the Mini 10 along with a desktop to replace my HP laptop that was giving me nothing but trouble. I originally looked at the mini 9, and I managed to get a hands on look at one, and I couldn't fit my fingers onto the mini 9's keyboard. the Minin...

"About as close to perfect as you could expect"


The size, weight and capability make this a machine to consider. The screen is exactly what is advertised...10.1 inches and I find the black frame enhances the display. I haven't found anything yet that I can't do. It takes a little getting used to,...

This device is absolutely perfect for my needs. The things I really like are the keyboard, the display, the hard drive capacity and most importantly, the capability of getting into setup to change boot ordr. The battery life is OK....around 3 hours.

You'll need another pointing device. The touchpad just doesn't cut it, but then I haven't used any laptop where it's any good. Buy directly from Dell to avoid support issues with the big box stores. Dell doesn't offer a battery with more capacity.
