The NY Times reports that Dell is entering the low cost, mini-notebook computer market.
It’s called the Mini 9. For $349 you get Ubuntu LINUX. For another $50, you can have XP. The base model has 512 Meg of RAM and a 4 Gig solid state flash “hard” drive. You can get more RAM and and a bigger flash drive, but the price goes up. The model with 1 Gig of RAM and 16 Gig flash drive will put you back $450, which puts close to standard laptop costs.
They come standard with 3 USB ports, a 3-1 media card reader, audio I/O jacks, WiFi and an Ethernet jack.
