Today we look in our Netbook comparison series at the Dell Inspiron Mini 12 netbook. Is the 12 inch screen of the Mini 12 still making it a netbook? Does the Dell Inspiron Mini 12 have enough at its disposal despite the big screen to overtake the Asus Eee 1000HE, the netbook leading the sales at Amazon.com? We can try to find out.

Description
The Dell Inspiron Mini 12 features a 1.6-GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU, 1GB 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM, and up to 80GB 4200RPM Hard Drive. It can run on either the Genuine Windows Vista Home Basic or the Ubuntu Linux version 8.04.1. Other features of the Mini 12 include Intel US15W chipset, Intel Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator 500, Glossy 12.1 inch WXGA display (1280X800) and 802.11g mini-card. It has a standard 1.3MP webcam and Bluetooth Internal (2.0) mini-card.
Its thickness is less than 1.1 inch and it weighs only 2.7 pounds. Its dimensions are Width: 11.77" (299mm), Height: 0.92" (23.31mm) front / 1.09" (27.61mm) back and Depth: 9.02" (229mm). Its keyboard is 92 percent of full-size layout, which provides for a smooth typing experience.

Comparison
The Asus Eee 1000HE is powered by the 1.66Ghz Intel Atom N280 CPU whereas the Dell Inspiron Mini 12 features a 1.6-GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU. Dell ships the Mini 12 also with Vista and the Asus 1000HE comes only with the common netook OS Windows XP.
Both the Mini 12 and the 1000HE is featured by a 1GB RAM, and a 1.3MP camera. The display of Mini 12 is as the name suggests of 12.1 inches whereas the1000HE’s display is of just 10 inches.

While the hard disk of the Mini 12 is up to 80GB, the 1000HE has a much bigger 160GB HDD.

The weight of whereas the Dell Inspiron Mini 12 is 2.7 ponds making it much lighter than the Asus Eee 1000HE, which weighs 3.2 pounds. The Mini 12 is much more expensive than the 1000HE.

Verdict
You can easily see from the above comparison that the Dell Inspiron Mini 12 is not really a match for the Asus Eee 1000HE. But, if you are in search of anytime, anywhere Internet access on a large 12.1 inch screen you may be well off with the Dell mini 12 as it is rather light and compact. Also if you prefer to run Vista on a netbook the Dell is the choice for that.

Where to Buy
The Dell Inspiron Mini 12 is selling for $474.99 on Amazon.com. Of course the Dell Mini 12 also sells on Dell.com with lots of configuration options.
