Dell has updated its Inspiron Mini 10 netbook by giving it the latest technology from Intel, the Atom N450 1.66GHz processor. The new Dell Inspiron Mini 10 will boast nearly 10 hours of battery life thanks to a larger, low-profile battery and the greater efficiency of the Intel Atom N450 chipset. The new Mini 10 still has the same screen size of 10.1-inch with a resolution of 1024×600/1366×768. It is equipped with 1GB of RAM, a 160GB or 250GB hard drive and Broadcom Crystal HD for smooth HD playback. It comes with built-in speaker with SRS Surround sound and HDTV tuner and location-aware GPS configurations. The Mini 10 runs WIndows 7 Starter, or Windows XP Home or Ubuntu. It will be released in early January and starts at $299.
