Dell is now offering a new version of the Inspiron Mini 10 netbook in Europe. For the most part, the new Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 looks a lot like the Mini 10 I reviewed earlier this year. But there are a few subtle differences:
- The touchpad appears to have separate left and right buttons instead of integrated buttons.
- The 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 CPU has been replaced with a 1.66GHz Atom N455 chip (with support for DDR3 memory).
- The entire netbook is now one color instead of two.
The rest of the specs are pretty much the same, which means you’re looking at a netbook with a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of memory, a 160GB hard drive, and Windows 7 Starter Edition. It’s available for 279 Euros and up, or about $358.
You can find out more about the new model at Dell UK and Dell Italy.
Update: Dell says the Mini 1018 will be available in other regions this Fall. The laptop will apparently not be available with a high resolution 1366 x 768 pixel display or Broadcom Crystal HD video accelerator, but Dell will continue offering the Inspiron Mini 1012 for customers who want those features.
Woohoo for trackpad sanity!!! Boo for no hi-def res…
