The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Netbooks are perfectly good for basic internet and office tasks, but are usually incapable of playing high definition (HD) video. To overcome this some manufacturers have fitted their netbooks with HD-capable graphics chips, but these can shorten batte...

With the success of the Apple iPad, things have gone a bit quiet on the netbook front recently, but Dell is hoping its Inspiron Mini 1018 will change this. A 10-inch netbook offering lots of features at a bargain basement price, it's perfect for studen...
Good Unlike lots of netbooks, which tend to feel flimsy and toy like, the Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 provides a very robust construction. This makes it ideal for a life on the road, and it's more than capable of standing up to the rigours of day-to-day use. The m...
Bad Unfortunately, the interface is not all good. The touchpad is far too shallow, with the keyboard mounted too far forward in the chassis, limiting space.
Bottom line It's a small price to pay for such and impressive budget choice, however. With a good keyboard, excellent build quality and features including a 250GB hard drive, the Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 is well worth the asking price.Best offers for the Dell Inspi...

Dells cheap and cheerful Mini 10v is a firm favourite here at Vulture Central but some potential customers are doubtless more interested in capability and functionality rather than absolute economy. So, with that in mind, we thought it wise to take a...
Bottom line The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 is the polar opposite of the 10v. While the latter is designed to be a cheap as possible in the name of robust portable computing, the goal of the 10 proper is to be more a jack of all trades. Like all the current crop of Ato...
Product Code: NM1001 The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 is Dells latest netbook, a bit larger with a 10in screen. Dells first netbook, the Dell Inspiron Mini 9, proved rather popular, hitting the sweetspots of price, small size and usable features. It can...

Bottom line Minor exterior changes and new Atom chips aside, the 2010 Mini 10 is hard to get too excited about. Gone is the sub-£200 option, gone is the choice of Linux or a robust solid-state drive. In return, the price has gone up and you get nothing more than...
Dells Inspiron Mini 10 isnt just a netbook, its a work of art. Well, its lid is anyway. Dell has employed an artist by the name of Tristan Eaton to supply three designs for the Inspiron Mini 10 range and we tested one of them. It was an image of a sharp-kneed woman with her hands together, covered in patterns including swirls and circles. Now were not properly qualified to say what is and isnt art, but we definitely thinks it looks cool. Its a far cry from the flowery pattern that adorne...

Dell's Inspiron Mini range has grown over the years from tiny nine-inch models to larger 12-inch ultraportables and finally settled on the 10-inch Inspiron Mini 1018. A well-made and highly usable netbook, it's easy to recommend, but it lacks the flair...

With a slightly revamped design and a new Intel Atom CPU, Dell's popular Inspiron Mini 10 netbook continues to be a strong player in this crowded field, thanks in part to Dell's name-brand ubiquity, as well as to the company's capability to offer...
Bottom line Dell's basic netbook adds better battery life and the newest Intel Atom CPU, and robust configuration options add a level of flexibility many other netbooks lack.

Although most of the netbooks here feel sturdy, we were especially impressed by how robust the Mini 10 felt; its lid barely flexed at all under pressure. We were also immediately impressed with the keyboard. It makes good use of all the available sp...
The Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 or 'New Mini 10' as it's also known on the Dell website is another Atom based netbook, and as the name suggests it has a 10 inch screen (10.1 actually) - the difference here is that it's a higher resolution than the standar...
Bottom line Apparently Dell felt that already having a Mini 10 and Mini 10V wasn't quite confusing enough for customers, so they decided that they needed a 'New Mini 10'. I don't entirely know why they have this short form when they also create a long form, in th...
