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. Up close with Dell’s Eee PC killer [APCmag.com] Previously • Round up: Subnotebook madness!
