Dell Mini 12 Gone

Dell today in a low-key move shrunk its Inspiron Mini netbook line by dropping the Mini 12. The Texas PC builder hasn't explained the decision but now just leaves the Mini 10 as its lone netbook. It follows shortly after Dell's cancellation of the Mini 9, its first netbook introduced late last year.

Informally, the cancellation is assumed to involve the Mini 12's eventual replacement with the Mini 11, which should use Intel's CULV ultra mobile processors and run significantly faster than the Atom in the Mini 12. The outgoing system has at times been criticized for being too weak to handle Windows Vista and the larger display resolution while also being expensive enough to cost as much as entry full-size notebooks.
