Review Dell Mini 1012 Netbook

22 September 2010
  • Conclusion: The Dell Inspiron Mini 1012, in the reviewed alternative with a Broadcom Crystal HD chip and a high resolution HD Ready display resolution , can achieve many points in battery life. We found 5:38 hours playing a 720p decoded movie especially remarkable. Dell's 10 incher is suitable as a mobile entertainer with that and the bright display . Additionally, the case is as robust as rarely another netbook. The Inspiron Mini 1012 is a fan-less mini notebook.
  • Pros: Long battery life, 1366x768 pixel, Silent, Stable case & hinges, Smooth HD videos, Very good keyboard, Five and a half hours of runtime with 720p video clips and six and a half hours for surfing without using the HD chip. No other Nvidia Ion netbook bids such runtimes.
  • Cons: High waste air temperatures, No HDMI, Poor touchpad feedback, An HDMI-out and a matt display.

  • Conclusion: Overall, I really like the Mini 1012. Even though it’s Atom based, the improved screen resolution, battery life and keyboard make a real difference to the experience. I could myself see using this as a mobile computer for daily use and that’s not something I normally say about Atom powered PC’s.

Dell Inspiron Mini 1012

4 March 2010
  • Excerpt: One of the Big 4, Dell is a name not to be taken lightly when it comes to personal computing. Their netbooks; called the Mini series too have garnered good reputation, and the good thing is they have quite a few models, with varying internal specs in their lineup for consumers to choose from. Today we have the Mini 1012, a snazzy little netbook by Dell.

Dell Mini 1012 Review

12 February 2010
  • Conclusion: In my opinion, this is the best 10” netbook Dell has come out with.   The Dell Mini 1012 combines the better features of the Mini 10 (HD screen and many pci-e card options) and the Mini 10v (upgradable memory, extra USB port), while improving upon the 6 cell extended battery.  The Atom N450 helps push this netbook into a more “usable” realm of portable computers now that it can better handle Flash playback while keeping it’s power usage down to allow good battery life.
  • Pros: Excellent battery life (7+ hrs), Good upgrade options (hd screen, hd decoder, TV card), Atom N450 processor + Flash beta = smooth full screen Hulu
  • Cons: Not the best touchpad, All color options have a white bottom half

Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 Review

Tracy and Matt's Blog
19 May 2010
  • Summary: Apparently Dell felt that already having a Mini 10 and Mini 10V wasn’t quite confusing enough for customers, so they decided that they needed a ‘New Mini 10′. I don’t entirely know why they have this short form when they also create a long form, in this case ‘Inspiron Mini 1012′.

Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 review

23 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Netbooks are perfectly good for basic internet and office tasks, but are usually incapable of playing high definition (HD) video. To overcome this some manufacturers have fitted their netbooks with HD-capable graphics chips, but these can shorten battery life. Dell has taken a different route with its Inspiron Mini 1012 netbook: it has a 1,366x768 10in screen and a Broadcom CrystalHD decoder for playing HD video.

  • Conclusion: Mini 1012 - Eğlence makinesi atılılmda Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 alternatif Broadcom Crystal HD çipi ve HD Ready yüksek ekran çözünürlüğü ile batarya kullanım süresinde birçok noktada başarı sağlayabilir. 720p kodu çözülmüş bir filmin 5:38 saat boyunca oynatılmasını özellikle dikkate değer bulduk.

Dell Inspiron mini 1012

21 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Pod względem stylistyki netbook ten może konkurować z najładniejszymi konstrukcjami. Wyposażony jest w starannie wykonaną obudowę, utrzymaną w czarno białej stylistyce. Ma charakterystyczną pokrywę, która jest nieco przysunięta do przodu, pod względem stylistyki to o wiele lepsze rozwiązanie niż wystająca bateria z tyłu komputera.
  • Pros: Ciekawy wygląd, Jakość wykonania, Długi czas pracy na baterii
  • Cons: Niska wydajność, Nietypowy touchpad
