Review: Dell Inspiron Mini 9 netbook with Ubuntu Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Where the Mini 9 really scores, however, is with its 1024x600 resolution, 
| backlit 8.9inch display, which is bright, sharp and colourful. 
| All in all, this is a well made, well-implemented netbook and I particularly 
| like the way Dell have customised Ubuntu to work with the device. But would I 
| buy one? Probably not for me, but my kids might find the Mini 9 useful - and 
| that keyboard would suit their eight-year-olds' hands.

| Dell has started selling some of its machines with Ubuntu pre-installed, and
| Shuttleworth says that "the machines are selling well".
| "[Dell] clearly sees Linux users as thought leaders", he told Open Week
| attendees. "They know it takes a lot of work to do something like Linux well
| and they work very hard at it, so we appreciate the partnership."
| As for mobiles, he quipped: "Linux is a perfect platform for consumer
| electronics, and the rate of adoption there is fantastic, but it's highly
| fragmented. There are many different projects, environments and frameworks
| for Linux on smartphones", he said.

Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Review

| Dell wants you to believe the Inspiron Mini 9 is "your new best friend."
| Well, kiddies, the Mini 9 is a fantastic mobile companion that helps you stay
| connected and makes your life easier without breaking the bank. However, I
| can't shake the feeling that the Mini 9 is more like "the kid you're friendly
| with at the lunch table, but isn't your BFF."

| Like the Sylvania g Netbook Meso, the Inspiron Mini 9’s speakers are below
| the screen on the bottom bezel. They were able to pump out Coldplay’s Life In
| Technicolor at a surprising volume, and lacked the typical tinniness of other
| small notebooks.


Dell mini-notebook offers Linux for a premium

| Round Rock (TX) – Dell today announced its first mini-notebook that squarely
| aims for a market that has been created by products such as the OLPC or Asus'
| EeePC. It comes in a stylish package with an 8.9” screen and Windows and
| Linux options. But while Dell has decides to join its rivals on the
| mini-notebook train, it found that calling this device a “netbook” would not
| be a good idea.


Dell bets on a small laptop

| and will be available in the U.S., Japan, and some European countries.

| Dell today is revealing the full details of the Inspiron Mini 9, its first
| netbook. The 8.9-inch portable once rumored as the Inspiron 910 shares a
| similar design to larger Inspirons but, apart from the smaller screen, uses a
| 1.6GHz Intel Atom chip and Ubuntu Linux to significantly shrink its size
| without significantly affecting its responsiveness or its feature set.

Are “instant on” notebooks the future?

,----[ Quote ]
| If I think about my normal notebook usage patterns, I’m pretty sure I could
| spend a good 80 - 90% of my time in the instant on environment and only boot
| into Windows when I needed to do something specifically Windows-centric. In
| fact, given a properly set up Linux distro as the main OS (which should be a
| snap to set up since these systems would/should already be Linux-compatible
| because they are running the Linux-based instant on OS ) which would allow me
| to handle Microsoft Office docs, and a VPN, I could do away with having
| Windows on the system altogether and simply connect to a secondary
| Windows-based PC when I wanted that functionality (when on the road I rarely,
| if ever, need to run anything heavy such as Photoshop).


Dell’s comeback machine

,----[ Quote ]
| There are some surprises beneath the surface of the Latitude line as well.
| One is an optional Linux-based low-power mode called Dell Latitude On, which
| boots in two seconds. It offers more than a day’s worth of battery life for
| basic tasks like web surfing, Exchange e-mail, and viewing e-mail
| attachments, and runs on an ARM-based (ARMH) chip rather than the main Intel
| processor. (HP and Lenovo laptops offer similar Linux modes, but with fewer
| capabilities.)



Will HP Follow Dell With Ubuntu Linux PCs?

,----[ Quote ]
| Initially, I was skeptical about Dell's decision to sell selected consumer
| PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed.
| But after a few days of testing, I'm a skeptic no more. And I'm not alone.
| Dell insiders tell me that the Ubuntu PCs, introduced in late May, are
| selling well -- though they decline to share exact sales figures with
| me.
