There’s already a ton a buzz and speculation going on in the forums. I’m sure once they start shipping they’ll be hacked within a few hours.
A major annoyance of the Mini 9 appears to have been fixed in the Mini 10. It might seem like a minor thing, but the quote key on the 9 isn’t between the colon and the Enter key like it is on a normal keyboard. Â The result is that when you type a word that has an apostrophe you naturally hit the Enter key instead of the ‘. From all the photos I’m seeing it looks like there are now two keys between the L and the Enter.
The 10 also boasts a 720P screen, 2 GB RAM, and real hard drives that will go up to 250GB. A couple of other cool options (which I expect will only work under windows) include a GPS and an HD TV tuner.
We’re still very happy with our Dell Mini 9, but when this comes out it might be time to give it to a relative and upgrade to the 10. Â Of course it will depend on whether or not it can be turned into a hackintosh. Â Or, alternatively, Apple could just release the netbook we’ve all been waiting for and we would buy that instead.
