Dell Mini 10 first was shown off at CES show last month. Dell Inspiron Mini netbook Line up is getting matured by Mini 10. Dell has put together all experiences learned from the designing of Mini 9 and Mini 12 and is releasing its new netbook Mini 10 with impressive striking features. This Mini laptop is available for pre-order now at QVC for $560 (featuring processor Z530, 1GB DDR2 SDRAM, 60GB HDD, 802.11 wireless-G and 1.3MP webcam and no bluetooth).

Here are the highlighted features:

- Customizable netbook, there are options available for color design, processor, hard drive Wireless and external optical drive

- A bright 10.1", seamless widescreen display with a16:9 aspect ratio and 1024x576 resolution

- HDMI out for watching HD movies on external TV or bigger display rather than typical VGA out

- Wireless– n and Bluetooth

- 2 USB and 1 Power USB

- The netbook is available in 6 color options including Red, pink, blue, white, black and green and 5 artist designs that will be available later.

- Multi-touch track pad and the keyboard at 92% the size of a standard laptop

- Partnership with Box.net to provide 2GB of free Internet storage for every Inspiron Mini 10 customer

- Spill resistant

- Online backup service offers data protection

- Optional 720p Hi-def 10.1¨ seamless display, optional 2GB memory and optional 250GB2 hard drive, optional GPS with optional internal WWAN support , internal digital TV tuner and 6-cell battery with 6 hours runtime that Dell will release all these options for Mini 10 some later.

Well, from now, I should say the first and big complaint against Mini 10 is its short battery life. The 3-cell battery will only last maximum 3 hour unlike Samsung NC10 can easily run up to 6-7 hours with its battery. The second complaint must be over its some expensive price. If you look at the price of fashionable Asus Eee 1000HE or Acer Aspire on AOD 150, you will have more interest to these netbooks because of their aggressive prices and even their battery life. However, Mini 10 comes with HDMI which none of these netbooks are able to provide it.
