Dell Mini Notebooks – Very Nice



I’ve seen these new mini notebooks and they look VERY nice. They’re about the size of a small book which makes for nice portability. It’s nice to see the small laptop form factor making a comeback. I really hope that this size laptop is around to stay for a while. I have an old Sony Vaio which is not a bad size, but most laptops are just too big to be REALLY portable.

I think this size notebook is an improvement on the concept of the PDA because it gives you more options.

The problem I’ve had with PDA’s is tedious data entry, a tendency to take away buttons and make touchpad style sensors (which really makes using them as an audio player annoying – you have to look at the device to skip a track, you have to look at the device to adjust volume, etc.

IF PDA’s are going to be that annoying to work with you may as well just have a miniature computer with a REAL keyboard. It would be nice to seem them add tablet/touchscreen capabilities though. That would be a good plus.

Most of these start around $400 by the way, which is not a bad pricepoint.
