Dell has just announced that the new Inspiron Mini 12 laptop will be available globally sometime in the month of November for around $600.

Dell refers to this product as being a laptop (not a netbook). This sounds rather unusual, as this product runs on an Intel Atom-type CPU which, so far, has been used only by UMPCs and netbooks. Morover, this specific model will run on a “Z” series Atom CPU which was developed for handheld internet tablets, not notebooks.

Here are some specifications:

  • 12-inch display (1280×800)
  • Atom CPU (1.3GHz Z520 or 1.6GHz Z530)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 40, 60, or 80GB hard drive
  • Bluetooth and 802.11b/g
  • Built-in webcam
  • 3G wireless option available in 2009
  • 3 or 6-cell battery (respectively 3h and 6h operating time)
  • 3 USB ports and a 3-in-1 card reader
  • Windows Vista Home Edition (Linux Ubuntu available later)
  • Starting weight of 2.72 and 0.92in at its thinnest point

What’s Next for Apple?

Apple iMac

After the notebook event of October 14th, one might be wondering what’s next for Apple.

Consumers thinking of buying an iMac should reconsider and wait as speculations of a new iMac lineup are surfacing around the web. This should happen before the end of the year and most probably before Christmas season.

The iMac is a great product and should not see many asthetic changes but will surely benefit from new and more performant Intel chips along with better graphics processors.
