What’s the difference?

The mini 9 is small with a screen size just under 9 inches, while the mini 12 is slightly larger with a 12 inch screen. The 12 also weighs about half a pound more. Most of the minis run on Linux or Windows XP, which is great if you’re Vista-phobic.

Dell mini 9 Netbook (Hot! Hot! Hot!)


Did I say “Hot! Hot! Hot!” already?  Lemme look …. hmmm (looks up a little bit) …. yes … yes, I did. Okay.

The Dell mini 9 Netbook is one of the hot items for holiday shopping this year.  It’s not Cabbage Patch doll or a Wii.  (Who remembers the Cabbage Patch doll craze?)

The Dell mini 9 is a small — every dimension is under 10 inches — and incredible light at about 2 pounds. Yet very powerful computer.  My favorite part is the Flash, or solid state, drive. That’s where everything is stored.  The Flash drive has no moving parts so its fast and durable, and durable is what you need with a machine so small you can take it just about anywhere. That’s great if you getting one or more for your kids.

It’s also great for business people who need to travel light and fast. My friend, Evantz Saint-Gerard of Nationwide Equities Corp., tells me his business partner, Dean Graber, is crazy about his mini 9, and now Evantz can’t wait to get one, too. Tami Racaniello of It’s Time To Get Fit, is also considering getting one, too. I’ve been recommending this computer left and right.

I’m mentioning it again because if you act fast you can get one today from Dell for $299.  That’s after a special today only savings of $50.

The base unit — which is completely customizable when you order — is Alpine White, and runs on Linux (Ubuntu v8.04.1), 1Yr Ltd Warranty and Mail-In Service, 512MB RAM (Memory), 4GB Solid State Drive, an Intel® Atom Processor® N270 (1.6GHz/533Mhz FSB/512K cache), a glossy 8.9 inch LED display (1024X600), and a Wireless 802.11g Mini Card.

Netbook Offers (Dell and ClubMac)

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Netbooks lately. Netbooks are small, compact, lightweight computers that are very handy for travellers who need to have a computer handy.  They are great if your primary interest is Internet access while travelling. Most netbooks have built in WiFi for wireless Internet access — great at Internet cafes such as Starbucks, Borders, and some Barnes and Noble bookstores, among others. They can also be tethered to a cellphone for Internet access, too.

Some will say, “Isn’t this a laptop?”

Netbooks are much smaller and much lighter than laptops, and tend to use Flash memory cards like your digital camera, so netbooks have fewer moving parts than laptops. Netbooks also have less storage space, but most come with online storage or USB capability for thumb drives.

My top recommendations for netbooks include the Asus Eee PC and the Dell Inspiron mini 9. These two machines are expected to be hot items on Black Friday. That’s three days from today.

Update: Watchout for netbooks using HDD (hard disk drives) versus SSD (solid-state drives). I prefer the SSD units because they have no moving parts and are more durable and more shock resistant than standard hard drive (HDD) technology. SSDs are smaller, and cost more, but their durability makes up for it. This is very important with a small portable computer which is more prone to shocks.
