Mini 12 Netbooks

by Lee

The sales of Mini 12 netbooks has been stopped by Dell. This is due to customer demand.

An explanation was posted in a blog post about the decision which says:
It really boils down to this: for a lot of customers, 10-inch displays are the sweet spot for netbooks. That’s why we offer two different 10-inch Inspiron netbooks for Mini 10 and the Mini 10v. And on the Latitude side, the Latitude 2100 netbook is finding a home in schools all over the place.

    Too bad, they are a great product with a keyboard that is %90 of a regular keyboard. I have set up two clients with them in the last month and they love them.

    uite, and together with its aforementioned compactness and long battery life, it becomes possible to do productive work on the Asus Eee HA1005 – maintaining web sites, writing long articles, coding, e-networking, etc – almost anywhere.

    Though the 1GB RAM is ostensibly unimpressive, it can easily be upgraded by getting the Crucial 2GB 667 Mhz CT25664AC667 DDR2 200-Pin SODIMM Laptop Memory, which you can buy for around $25-30 from Amazon. Replacing them isn’t very hard given a screw and five minutes, and doing so noticeably ups the performance. Keeping dozens of Chrome tabs open is no big problem (PS. yes, use Chrome – its sheer brilliance was one of my main reasons for switching back to Windows from Linux). Even gaming is decent. In an experiment, I found that Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory runs very smoothly, at least when you have around 20-25 players or less, despite the fact this platform was never designed for gaming. It doesn’t emit a lot of heat and it has a good ventilation system, so overheat
