Dell Mini 10 with Broadcom Crystal HD Accelerator review

 

Michael Dell may not be a fan of netbooks, but you wouldn't know that from the newest Mini 10. Joining the current Mini 10v, Dell's completely overhauled

Unique design ; Available in slew of colors ; Comfortable matte keyboard

Thicker than most netbooks ; Frustrating touchpad ; Broadcom Crystal HD solution is hit or miss

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 gets reviewed

 

Dell's Mini 10 netbook certainly seems to occupy the sweet spot between the company's Mini 9 and Mini 12 offerings but, according to Laptop's review of the netbook, there may be just a few too many trade-offs for some folks. On the upside, the Mini ...

Dell Inspiron Mini iM1012-687OBK review:

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our , which covers specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

Sophisticated design; good battery life.

Smaller hard drive than the competition offers.

This retail version of Dell's Mini 10 Netbook, called the iM1012-687OBK, has a great battery, but chances are it's sitting on a shelf right next to a less expensive Netbook with a bigger hard drive.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10s (HD)

 

The Dell Mini 10s (HD) piles on features better than any other netbook at this price, but a poor navigating experience and second-tier battery life hold it back.

Feature-rich. Improved design. Bigger keyboard. Inexpensive, given the feature set. 1,366-by-768 resolution.

Irritating navigating experience. No HDMI Out with HD display.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 (Intel Atom N450) review: Dell Inspiron Mini 10 (Intel Atom N450)

 

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 (Intel Atom N450)

Sophisticated new design; plenty of configuration options; good battery life.

Low-resolution display; options can quickly drive up price; small keyboard and touch pad.

Dell's basic Netbook adds better battery life and the newest Intel Atom CPU, and robust configuration options add a level of flexibility many other Netbooks lack.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10

 

Netbooks are a lot cheaper than full-size notebooks, the battery lasts a lot longer, and if you spend most of your time in a Web browser anyway, the performance limitations aren't that big a deal. With the Mini 10, Dell attempts to tap into the desires...

Decent TV tuner ; Good design with small, light layout

Mediocre netbook performance ; High-res screen is a little hard to read

Despite a decent design, this netbook's screen and limited storage don't make it the ideal platform for a TV tuner.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Netbook review: Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Netbook

 

As a master of the build-to-order PC, it's no surprise that Dell has managed to create a reasonably customizable version of the Netbook. While most vendors offer them as one-size-fits-all solutions (or with only very minor options, such as color and...

High-end extras including a higher-resolution screen and HDMI output; very configurable, for a Netbook, including optional mobile broadband.

Options drive the price up into mainstream laptop territory; same basic chassis as the sub-$300 version of the Mini 10.

Dell's popular Mini 10 is the most customizable Netbook we've seen. Adding extras such as a higher-resolution display makes it more useful, but also blurs the price line between Netbooks and mainstream laptops.

Review: Dell Mini 10 Netbook

 

Dell pushes the upper echelons of netbookitude with the Mini 10. It's a little laptop whose Atom processor marks it as a populist ultraportable, but...

Bright, responsive screen. Integrated 1.3-megapixel webcam. Not gunked up with crapware. HDMI-out port shows charming, if unwarranted, optimism about the netbook’s video capabilities. Light weight: Just 2.6 pounds

Infuriating trackpad with integrated buttons hidden underneath. Excessively glossy screen produces distracting glare. Windows XP is starting to look pretty tired. What, no solid-state option? Despite the HDMI port, the netbook can’t deliver HD video...

Dell Inspiron Mini 10s

 

Poor user experience aside, the Mini 10s is chock full of features. It nails down netbook basics like the three USB ports, VGA-Out, Ethernet, and a 4-in-1 media card reader. It has a 250GB hard drive (5400rpm) that matches the ones found in the Toshiba...

Feature-rich. Improved design. Bigger keyboard. Inexpensive, given the feature set. 1,366-by-768 resolution

Irritating navigating experience. No HDMI Out with HD display

The Dell Mini 10s (HD) piles on features better than any other netbook at this price, but a poor navigating experience and second-tier battery life hold it back from stardom.

Review: Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 Netbook

 

Reliability on a Budget. The Inspiron Mini 1018 is the new 10-inch "budget netbook" from Dell. The hardware is up to current standards, but you'll have to go without additional features at a starting price of 279 Euro.

Long Battery Life, Fanless Cooling System, Reliable Build, Pleasing Design, Comfortable Keyboard, Current Netbook Hardware

Small Touchpad, Very Warm to the Touch, Few Accessories Included, Only 1 Speaker, Glossy Screen
