Engadget has posted up some leaked insider shots of the Dell Mini-Inspiron Netbook (still MIA, dammit) running Ubuntu Netbook. The slathering of Ubuntu on a netbook is satisfying in a peanut butter meets bacon sort of way, but the real news is a system profile shot, in which it appears that the Mini-Inspiron's Atom chip supports hyperthreading... which would appear to make it the first Atom netbook to support the technology. Unless that's the first dual core Atom netbook we're looking at.
