Dell Inspiron Mini 9 gets Priced

Dell Philippines formally announced the release of the Inspiron Mini 9″ in a launch party this evening. It’s a little late in an already crowded netbook market but as they say, “it’s better late than never”.

We got first confirmation of its local availability about 2 weeks ago during the Intel Atom launch. Earlier reports of the specs can be found here although the red version spotted last May is nowhere to be found (only available in Obsidian Black).

And the price — Php24,599 for the Windows XP Home version. The Ubuntu Linux model, seen here in the picture, has not been priced yet.

The built-in webcam is 2.0 megapixel. The QWERTY keyboard has a slightly different layout where the Fucntion keys are placed at the middle rows instead of the usual top row. Other miscellaneous keys are also missing — Scroll Lock, Num Lock, Pause/Break, etc — so it has much fewer keys.

  4. I don’t mind the lack of function keys. As long as it has esc and delete and back. But very pricey. You can get a c2d Vostro for that price.

    Looks neat and for that price tag it’s a deal for some.

    But I still have my eyes set on the Lenovo IdeaPad. :D
