APC got their hands on the upcoming mini-notebook from Dell. Currently the notebook is being called the “Inspiron Mini.”

  • Ubuntu will probably be an option
  • Most likely being released in August
  • The wait is because they are trying to get the keyboard just right
  • No dedicated function keys
  • Three USB ports, VGA, and a memory card reader

The notebook looks really good, I love all of these new small form factor notebooks.  I personally consider these to be an amazing option for college students, they can take them to classes without adding too much weight to a bag, and since a lot of typing is going to be done on it, it doesn’t need to be too powerful.
