More Dell Mini 10 Details Trickle Out

From Tom's Hardware: The thing is, though, that that Mini 10 isn’t out available yet, making it hard to judge against the other 10-inch netbooks on the street. Still, we liked what we saw at CES 2009 and are eager to learn more.

Dell’s still keeping its cards close to its chest, but a slide from Engadget reveals a few more details. For starters, the 1366 x 768 “720p” resolution is the high-end option, as there now lists a 1024 x 576 resolution as well.

While all the other 10-inch netbooks run 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processors, the Mini 10 will give users the choice of a 1.3 GHz on top of the usual 1.6 GHz -- though both will be Silverthorne.

Netbooks by nature of form factor do not have built-in optical drives, but the slide lists and optional “DVD slice,” which is sure to be a slimline external drive. Finally, there lists an option between 3- and 6-cell batteries.

The more premium hardware, such as the TV tuner, multitouch trackpad and higher resolution leads us to believe that the Mini 10 will be a bit more expensive than the rest, but hopefully Dell will reveal all soon.
