Summary: I've bought many netbooks before and they have served me well, but the Dell Mini is awful. Its boot up takes too long on start-up and simple pages online and in program take ages to load, some icons take forever to respond to the fact that you have actually clicked on them.. The touch pad is even worse and you end up flying to the bottom of the screen and what you actually clicked ends up being something else.
Summary: Sold a computer that doesn't work. Asked for my money back, £145 to be told: it was made to measure - yet its a standard Dell as advertised, then it came with a note to say not returnable- this simply was not true. Hve reported this B to Amazon and hope to get my money back.
Summary: In theory, a nice handy little piece of kit. In practice this has just been a nightmare. Just received it back from the Dell repair for the THIRD time, and within half an hour it blue-screened, again. I have yet to run this machine for more than a few hours in all the time I have had it before blue-screening and Dell seem utterly incapable of doing anything about it. Concur with comments about the touch-pad which is pretty annoying.
Summary: I bought this to take on an extended European holiday. Yes, it is nice and compact and light. Yes, the battery usually lasts me a whole day. The keyboard is a little cramped for my fat fingers, but I expected that. What I didn't expect was the useless touch-pad. The mouse buttons are built into the touch-pad and sometimes when I go to click on something I've located, the cursor flies across to the far side of the screen and I get something else.
