Dell Mini 10 Review

Although it's barely six months old, Dell's netbook effort has been advancing to where it's already on its third new design in the form of the Inspiron Mini 10. These early experiences have given Dell an opportunity to improve not only on what it did before but also weaknesses inherent to netbooks at large. That the Mini 10 is an improvement is certain; but, as we'll soon learn in the full Mini 10 review, it's possible that Dell has also been moving too quickly in some areas and not quickly enough in others.

    Confusing review...

    Some of the information presented in this review contradicts available information.

    The Dell Mini 10 uses the US15 chipset, which features full HD decode:

    Other reviews of the Asus 1000HE indicate that it's still using the 945 chipset and not the GN40 chipset.
