APC got a brief hands-on with the upcoming mini-notebook from Dell, currently nicknamed the “Inspiron Mini”. Here are the salient bits:
• Ubuntu will probably be an option. (Perhaps the Netbook Remix?)
• Launching in August, probably.
• Late to market because they’re “working on getting the right keyboard,” something I agree is the heart-and-soul of a good notebook.
• No dedicated function keys. (That’s fine with me.)
• Three USB ports, VGA output, memory card reader.
