Summary: Don't buy a Dell unless you want to talk to an Indian customer service call center where all they are trained to do is say is: "No! No! No!", they are rude and talk over you, and finally disconnect the call. Don't buy Dell! I will never make that mistake again. This company will not survive- sell the stock if you have any!
Summary: Had my Inspiron Mini 12 for a little over 2 weeks when I used it on a flight from Europe to work on a Word Document. Heard a sizzling sound and then the system crashed. Couldn't find hard disk anymore. Then didn't even have video anymore. Called the Dell Tech Support. Horrible experience. The guy wasn't even listening to me. Diagnosed hard disk problem. When the technician came to replace the hard disk, he realized that there was more wrong than that.
Summary: Wow, to be honest, I have never seen such a low powered, glitchy, slow machine in my life. First off, when you open stuff, it takes what it seems like minutes to open it. And even when I DO get it open, it takes even longer. Let me just say that Cnet's review isn't really... Accurate... Not at all... Plus, the battery looks very awkward in the position it's in. I actually dropped it and it permanently screwed up the battery.
Summary: I don't know what Cnet is smoking, but this is a horrible netbook. It takes forever for applications to load, the bootup is forever, and the battery. My god, the battery. For one, it's placement on the device is awkward at best and ridiculous at worst. And it's horrible. Despite being branded as "rugged" it's far too easy to drop it and have the battery snap right off, permanently damaging the machine and the battery.
