It's a small form factor notebook, just like the Asus Eee and the HP2133.He wouldn't tell me what OS it's running, or the pricing, but that it'sa low-cost notebook meant for developing countries, and I hope here.
Maybe it's Atom-powered. Who knows? But I do see three USB ports, acard reader, VGA out, Ethernet, and that red candy shell. I couldn'ttell how big the screen was before it was tucked away into a blacksleeve and ushered from the building, but it's small. Update: Dell just released a pair of shots that add to the sense of scale, but no official name yet.

SPEC:
8.9-inches dolled up in a sub-$500 price tag with a choice of bothWindows XP Home or Ubuntu Linux, 8-in-1 card reader, integrated webcam,direct media playback buttons, and a "host of wireless access options."Expect more next week as the Computex show kicks off.






Gizmodo.com and Direct2Dell.com published yesterday images of the Dell Mini Inspiron ultraportable laptop, the companyís first low-cost mini-notebook.     
Detailsof the Dell Mini Inspiron are currently unknown. However, Gizmodonoticed that the small laptop has three USB ports, a memory cardreader, VGA output, and Ethernet LAN port. The notebook has a red lid.
    
Earlier reports say Dellís 8.9-inch screen mini-laptop will be launched in June and will start at $399.

I would like to know a few more specs about this laptop before even considering it.  I'm just glad Dell did something good for once by letting you stay with XP and making a computer for other countries, although I'm sure these countries would prefer something easier to type with.  I find these very tiny laptops only good for college students or travelers, where you can't afford much space.  Otherwise they're kind of useless but still cool nonetheless.
