Prices start at around $180.
Dell offers several different models with a choice of Intel Celeron J1800, J1900, or Pentium J2900 Bay Trail processors.
Each model features 2GB of RAM, 32GB of solid state storage, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0. The computers have Ethernet jacks, HDMI and DisplayPort, one USB 3.0 ports, three USB 2.0 ports, and an SD card reader.
The computers ship with Windows 8.1 with Bing 64-bit software, but they should all be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10 when the update is available this summer.
I found the Dell Inspiron Micro at a few different pages on the Dell website, so it looks like there are a few different places to check to find the best price on the model of your dreams. Note that some of these prices include discounts from the normal list prices, so the total cost could change:
- Inspiron Micro w/Celeron J1800 for $179
- Inspiron Micro w/Pentium J2900 for $229
- Inspiron Micro w/J1800 + keyboard & mouse for $200
- Inspiron Micro w/J1800 + keyboard, mouse, and 23.8″ monitor for $380
There’s also a page showing higher list prices, but lower sale prices running between $176 and $353.
The Dell Inspiron Micro looks like it’s targeting the same segment of the market as the recently-launched $180 HP Stream Mini, which has an Intel Celeron 2957U Haswell processor. HP also offers a higher-powered Pavilion Mini with a choice of Intel Pentium or Core i3 Haswell processors for $320 and $450, respectively.
