The New Dell Mini 10 is powered by an Atom N450, part of the Pinetrail chipset, running at 1.66 Ghz. It has 1 GB of RAM, and this model I purchased from Dell Canada has a 5400 RPM, 250 GB hard drive. It features 802.11b/g WiFi, but this model I have doesn't have Bluetooth (nor was it an option at the time I purchased it). Check your local Dell Web site to see if they're offering Bluetooth. It has a 56WHr Lithium-Ion Battery (6-cell), a 10.1" wide screen display (1024 x 600 pixels), and an integrated 1.3 megapixel Webcam. It's using Windows 7 Starter Edition for the operating system. After the break is part two of the video. <MORE /></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/iLsiOiZ-YDI&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/iLsiOiZ-YDI&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /></object></p><p>Just like Dell did with their first-generation Mini 10, they're talking about HD screens, Broadcom's Crystal HD media Accelerator, GPS, and TV tuners - but you can't get any of those options as the time I shot these videos. Dell's approach is a bit confusing. Got any questions about the new Mini 10? Post them in the forum and I'll do my best to answer them.</p><p><em>Jason Dunn owns and operates <a href="http://www.thoughtsmedia.com/" target="_blank">Thoughts Media Inc.</a>, a company dedicated to creating the best in online communities.
