First Look: Dell Inspiron Mini 10v

1:01 /

For a Netbook with standard components for the category, but a rock-bottom price and decent overall design, it's hard to beat Dell's Mini 10v.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 [ Background music ] >> Dan Ackeman: Hi I'm Dan Ackeman and we are here with the Dell Mini 10 V. Now the V I assume stands for value because this is one of the least expensive net books out there starting at 299 and you know what for that price you manage to get something that looks and feels a lot like Dells more expensive regular mini 10, the non-v version. One of the main differences you're gonna see is the screen is just a regular old inset screen. It doesn't have that cool edge to edge glass and there are no fancy extras like an HDMI port, or a TV tuner, or a mobile broadband options but what you do get is a fairly standard set of net book components; Intel 270 Atom processor a giga ram, a 120 gig hard drive to start instead of the usual 160 but that's ok. You still get the same basic chassis with the wide flat key keyboard that's pretty easy to use and the same kind of widescreen style touchpad. So if you're looking to get a net book and not spend a lot of money but need to be at least basically useful. [ Background music ] >> It's hard to do a heck of a lot better than the Dell Mini 10 V.
