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
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.
