Getting Up Close With the Dell Mini-Note, Coming By August

image Looks like Dell had press event in Austin and unfurled much more about the Dell Mini-Note that caused quite a storm at the D6 conference last week.

Here is what APC Mag is reporting on what Dell was showing off at the press event:


  • The mini-note will likely be an Atom processor
  • likely run XP and Ubuntu
  • is due by August. The reason why they are later to market than the rest of the Computex crowd? They were working on getting the keyboard right.
  • labeling on the keyboard is subdued. The function keys are gone, instead being replaced by shortcuts ( volume, standby, etc ) scattered throughout the keys.
  • Ports include three USB, VGA, and a memory card slot.
  • It is being manufactured by Compal, the same company manufacturing the HP Mini-Note and MSI Wind
