adopt a mini

Dell ran a contest to give away three Inspiron Mini 10v netbooks via Twitter this week. Sorry, it’s too late to enter. The contest has ended. But as part of the promotion, Dell put together a rather amusing video that I thought was still worth sharing.

See, the premise of the contest was “adopt a mini” and Dell set up a web site at complete with a video exploring the plight of homeless mini-laptops in search of a good family. The video’s embedded after the break.
