A short preview of the upcoming Dell mini-notebook

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.
