Leaked Dell Roadmap Shows Mini 11

If a leaked roadmap is to be believed, Dell has another netbook on the way. Or at least it would if the Dell Mini 11 won't purportedly have an 11.6in display which is, as we have discussed, is too large to count as a netbook.

Still, that 11.6in screen is listed as "HD" which should mean 1,280 x 720 at the very least - with 1,366 x 768 a possibility. Coupled to 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive option and Windows Vista the implication is that the Mini 11 is going to be just a little different to the standard netbook fare.

The leak also suggests that Dell will be adding new options to the Mini 10 range, including a six-cell battery, a TV tuner and Ubuntu Linux or Vista OS choices. These options should become available on the 17th, with pricing obviously varying.

The Mini 11 isn't planed to arrive until Q3, so we'll be waiting a little longer to see the exact nature of the beast.

Hopefully they will remove the soldered memory from the mini 10 then it might become a more worthwhile upgradeable netbook.

Hopefully(kneeling) Dell is meaning to put in an Intel ULV SU3500,the processor that's in the upcoming MSI X-Slim X340 when they say "Laptop like performance" and not an underpowered Intel Atom.

I thought the whole point of netbooks when the asus eee came out were to make really small/portable machines for internet browsing and other processor-light simple tasks, at a cheap price. Sinces they have become popular I swear all that companies have done is to make them more and more powerful. Rather than improving on design and adding intelligent new useful features to go along with the concept of small, light and simple they are just putting laptop components in a smaller box and increasing the price!

I don't mind them adding in features and more performance.. that's naturally going to happen over time. But the price has to stay below &#163350 or it's just not a netbook any more.
