While we already had some evidence suggesting that Dell would be getting ready to unleash a low cost ultraportable in August, DigiTimes has found some industry sources who are confirming that Dell should be ready to ship the computer next month.
As expected, it looks like the cheapest Dell mini-notebook (which may or may not be called the Dell E) will cost just $299, making it one of the cheapest subnotebooks around. Unless Dell’s gotten all crazy with the specs, we can expect a laptop with an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atcom CPU, 802.11g, 512MB of RAM, a 0.3 MP webcam and a 4GB SSD. For a few bucks more you’ll be able to get more RAM, more storage, and even a larger notebook model with a 12 inch screen.
