The Mini 1210's upgraded processor and shift to Windows XP does remove some of the original model's biggest issues, but it's still not a netbook that we'd buy.

Good keyboard ; Clear display screen

Average battery life ; Large carrying size for a netbook

Tastes and needs will vary, but we're still not sold on the "bigger" form factor for netbooks. Dell has done some work to make the Mini 1210 more appealing, including dropping the price a touch. Still, at this size and price point, you can pick up a...

I received this last January as a gift loaded with Windows Vista (would not have been my choice). It is awful. I will echo the words of the reviewers above --SLOW. Abysmally slow. It is faster for me to surf the web on my blackberry than it is on this...

Do Not Buy This Product! I've had nothing but bad luck with this product - from locking up to slow processing speed. I do nothing with this laptop except take notes in class and it's still horrible. Losing a document I had spent 6 hours working on...

Absolutely nothing

Slow, loses work, locks up

This was a great idea from Dell. It stops there... I really like that the one that I purchased for $260 from Dell refurb, had all the features, bluetooth, wiFi, Web cam, etc. I love the size, the system is very light and thin.

Great screen, normal resolution, Great standard features

No memory upgrade, slower than the Mini 10v, Keyboard crowded

Abysmal performance running XP. Do more than one task at a time and things such as opening the start menu literally take 5 minutes after a single click.

Nothing

SLOW
