The Wall Street Journal reports that Dell’s Inspiron 910 Mini gets its PR baptism on Thursday, as Dell itself confirms it’ll be shipping them by the end of the week.
One person familiar with the matter said the new device will likely sell for less than $400. That price range would put the Dell device into competition with products such as the Eee PC from Asustek Computer Inc., which helped define a breed of systems that are sometimes called netbooks.
Dell’s managed to keep just a little mystery around the Minspiron, compared to the endless feast of information we get about rival subnotebooks. In a few days, however, we’ll get to see just how it manages to give us a 1.6 GHz Atom, 16GB flash hard drive, 9″ display and a gig of RAM so much cheaper than anyone else.
