Dell, the name that brought us some serious quality products over the years sent us a netbook from their Inpsiron Mini series. It’s small, it’s cute, and it's Atom-based. The netbook market has some insane choices and more are welcome. So here is our review of the Dell Inspiron Mini 10v.
Design and ergonomics.
Here comes my first complaint - the touch pad. It sucks, when you’re using it at normal speed. Only when you slowly move your finger across it does it behave. Dell please call up China, replace it NOW. The netbook looks very nice but ergonomics are not. It’s like the mouse is on speed, and you’re trying to catch it like some cheap online flash game. But besides that, everything else about the netbook’s design and feel is great. One small point to note in the keyboard is that the function keys and regular ones are reversed, thus to press F1 one has to use the Fn key first.
The screen is a 10.1-inch, 1024 by 600 native resolution affair. The Wi-Fi is upto Wi-Fi n, and of course we have regular Bluetooth capabilities and a 10/100 LAN port. The battery is a 3 cell Li ion model, with 6 cell optional.
As for software, we have Windows XP SP3 presintalled on our piece, along with Cyber link Power DVD 8.1, and McAfee Security demo. There are recovery and driver discs, about 3 of them in total.
