Dell's Convertible Inspiron Duo Starts at $549
"That's right, just as we had heard, Dell is finally putting an end to the Inspiron Duo's mysterious marketing videos and officially spinning its screen for the world to see! You won't be able to hit the order button on the totally unique 10.1-inch tablet / netbook hybrid today, but according to Dell, it should go up for pre-order sometime soon and start shipping out the first week of December. As for pricing, the base model will start at $549 (£449), and will pack a dual-core Intel Atom N550 processor, 2GB of RAM, a Broadcom Crystal HD accelerator, 250GB of storage, and Windows 7 Home Premium."
Engadget has the scoop on the Dell Inspiron Duo, and I have to say, I'm impressed with what you get for $549: a dual core Atom, 2 GB of RAM, a Broadcomm Crystal HD chip, 250 GB of storage, and of course that slick screen that flips around. Not a bad price at all! I'm especially impressed with the fact that Dell is using Windows 7 Home Premium and 2 GB of RAM. This will make it more usable than your average netbook with 1 GB of RAM and Windows 7 Starter.
