Dell's rather new mini 12 netbook has been reviewed on Vnunet. The Mini 12 is an odd duck in the netbook world. It's really more like an ultraportable in stature offering the prowess of a netbook. I don’t think this will be one of the more popular netbooks personally.

The device weighs 1.25kg and has a thin profile for portability. Power comes from a sluggish 1.33GHz Atom Z520 CPU. The device integrates Wi-Fi and a webcam. The review model here was a Linux unit; But Windows is available as well. The big screen means we are talking Vista not XP though.

The screen is good says the reviewer and the 3-cell battery gave only about two hours of run time. A six-cell battery is optional, but even then you are still looking at around four hours. Nothing compared to the crop of Eee and other 10-inch netbooks. That may be offset for some users by the larger screen and keyboard though. That said it's very nearly the price of a real notebook.
