Dell is holding a press event next week to announce new products which could include the company’s first entry into the netbook field. We’ve been seeing leaks and rumors about the upcoming Dell Inspiron Mini laptops for months now, but this could be the first time we get the official rundown from Dell.
Here’s what we (think we) know so far:
- Dell’s netbooks will come at several levels, with prices starting at $299.
- The Inspiron Mini will have an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 512MB of RAM, a 4GB SSD and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU.
- The low end computer will weigh about 2.2 pounds and measure 9.13″ x 6.9″ x 0.82″ to 1.22″.
- Dell will also be releasing a 12.1 inch laptop with a higher price and a stronger focus on performance.
I’ve been hearing for a while that the Inspiron Mini would be available in August. So there’s a good chance the laptop will be among the products Dell announces next week. And as long as I’m placing stock in rumors, I’ll go ahead and predict the laptop could be available immediately following the announcement. I could also be totally and completely wrong.
