  • Excerpt: Hvis sammenlignet med andre netbook som MSI Wind U100, for eksempel Dell Inspiron Mini 12 virkelig ser tynd. Den tykke er mindre end 1 tomme, netop 0,9 inches. Faktisk er størrelsen af skærmen, og hele kroppen omkring 2 inches mere dækkende end Wind U100.

Dell Inspiron Mini 12

27 January 2009
  • Summary: The Dell Inspiron Mini 12 might appeal if you want a netbook with a slightly larger display than normal. We'd think twice about buying the Ubuntu version, though -- it's simply too slow. The Vista model is quicker, but we can think of other netbooks that offer better features and value for money
  • Pros: Lightweight chassis; large mouse trackpad.
  • Cons: Clunky keyboard; Ubuntu version is sloooow.

Review Dell Inspiron Mini 12 Notebook

20 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Dell could have certainly hit the bull's eye with the 12-inch "netbook" design. The present growth of the traditional netbooks shows a clear trend toward the models with larger displays and more user friendly keyboards .
  • Pros: Agreeable design, Light and compact case, Thoroughly practical port configuration, Pleasant to use keyboard, Well-designed display, No appreciable noise emissions, Low surface temperatures, The reduction to the fundamentals, an electronic "notepad."
  • Cons: Reflective display impairs practical use outdoors, Power reserves only for basic applications, Short battery life

  • Pros: Excellent screen, Decent keyboard, Very good battery life, Thin and light
  • Cons: Pricier than other netbooks, but not faster, Small hard drive, Weak audio

Dell Inspiron Mini 12 review

7 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Dell's latest netbook is the Mini 12, which was previously called the Inspiron 1210. It's the biggest netbook yet, with a 12.1in screen, the same size as those used on many fully fledged ultra-portable laptops. The standard version comes with Windows XP Home installed on its small 80GB hard disk.

The not-so mini Mini: is a regular notebook or a netbook?

Good Gear Guide.au
3 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Dell's Mini 12 is the first netbook that breaks the 10in screen barrier, while still managing to remain thin and light. The 1GB RAM limit is disappointing and some will scoff at a 12in notebook being dubbed a netbook, but the Mini 12 is reasonably priced and should appeal to plenty of users.
  • Pros: Large display, light and thin, good build quality, well-designed keyboard
  • Cons: A little large for a netbook, poor battery life, mediocre speakers, 1GB RAM limit
