Above is part one of an unboxing and first impressions video of the new (as of February 2010) Dell Mini 10, a netbook that represents Dell's second generation product. The New Dell Mini 10 is powered by an Atom N450, part of the Pinetrail chipset, running at 1.66 Ghz. It has 1 GB of RAM, and this model I purchased from Dell Canada has a 5400 RPM, 250 GB hard drive. It features 802.11b/g WiFi, but this model I have doesn't have Bluetooth (nor was it an option at the time I purchased it). Check your local Dell Web site to see if they're offering Bluetooth. It has a 56WHr Lithium-Ion Battery (6-cell), a 10.1" wide screen display (1024 x 600 pixels), and an integrated 1.3 megapixel Webcam. It's using Windows 7 Starter Edition for the operating system. After the break is part two of the video.
Just like Dell did with their first-generation Mini 10, they're talking about HD screens, Broadcom's Crystal HD media Accelerator, GPS, and TV tuners - but you can't get any of those options as the time I shot these videos. Dell's approach is a bit confusing. Got any questions about the new Mini 10? Post them in the forum and I'll do my best to answer them.
