Dell Mini 9

The Dell Mini 9 is Dell’s first laptop to be featured as a netbook.The worst two things about this netbook are its slow CPU prosser (Intel Atom), and its small keyboard and touchpad. The Mini 9 has two options for your OS. The basic Mini comes with Linux pre-intstalled. Along with the opition to exchange Linux, for Windows XP Home Edition for a small fee. The Mini 9 features three USB ports, headphone and microphone jack, one VGA out port, a Ethernet port, and a SD card slot. For $20 dollars you can add bluetooth to the netbook. This is good if you like to use your phone as a wireless modem. The processor speeds are what you expect from a netbook. So as long as you keep your task moderate then you sholud be fine. This means not opening that many windows at once. Overall the Mini 9 is great for surfing the web, checking emails, and for entertainment purposes. The Mini 9’s speakers are very loud, so you can make use of that by watching videos or listening to music. Last but not least the screen on the Mini 9 is a 8.9 inch LCD display. So the screen in my opinion is not to big for a netbook and not to small for a netbook either. When in use the netbook feels small and is not a great typing compainon. The battery is great I thought, I got to pull off three hours without even charging it. So I would reccomend this netbook to someone who just needs to check there email, look at a webpage here and now, and maybe even sync there ipod.
