Laptop Mag Reviews Dell Mini 12 Netbook

Laptop Mag got their hands on a Dell Mini 12 Netbook and has posted up a quick first impression. That quick first impression though seems to suggest that this might not be the fastest performer out of the box. Keep in mind the Dell Mini 12 is running Vista Basic on an Intel Atom Z530 (Silverthorne) and not the Atom N270 that heretofore we’ve been accustomed to seeing. The reviewer, Joanna Stern, is asking the same questions I am. How does this perform with XP? Is Vista the choke point here, or is it something to do with the new processor. Joanna promises more to come, so this will be interesting to watch.
