No, Dell still hasn’t officially launched its upcoming Inspiron 910 mini-laptop. But the company has added a few technical support documents to its web site. So if you want to know more about the keyboard, status LEDs, or USB optical disc drive, just hit up the Dell web site.
There are also a few interesting details. For example, if you’ve been annoyed at Dell’s decision to eliminate the Fn keys, it looks like you can emulate them by hitting Fn+A, S, D, F, G, H, J, K, L, and ;. In other words, the middle row of keys on your keyboard replaces the top row found on most people’s keyboards. There is, however, no F11 so good luck maximizing your browser window.
The other technical documents are a pretty dry read. The status LED is solid white when the computer is on, flashes when it’s in standby, and off when the computer is off or in hibernate mode. Nothing surprising there.
The external optical drive can handle DVD+R(DL), DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R, CD-R, and CD-RW discs. I assume this drive is an optional accessory, not something that comes standard with every unit.
