Dell Inspiron Mini 9 unboxing

There’s no denying that the Net Book form factor is extremely popular at the moment with virtually all laptop manufacturers offering a mini laptop of some kind within their range. We’ve reviewed a large number of these in the past here on T&M from the trend-setting 7" Asus Eee PC to the more recent 9 and 10" models that have hit the market.


The Dell Inspiron Mini 9


Dell are, perhaps, late to join the party with their Inspiron Mini 9. As the name suggests, the Mini 9 comes with a 9" display and, just like many of it’s competitors, is powered by an Intel Atom low-power CPU.

So what can the Dell Mini 9 offer that sets it apart from the rest of the Net Book crowd? Well we have been using the Mini 9 for the past few weeks and are just about to finish up the review so to find out more you’ll have to stop by in a day or two. Until then have a look at the unboxing video below for a quick tour of the Mini 9 and for a couple of quick review comments.
