Click to see the video Details, News and Links for Dell Mini 9
hmmmm 22:20GMT video no longer available.
Which one do you prefer? the eee pc or the dell?
Pressing F1 would make more sense pressing Fn + 1,and put the control knobs like brightness on the 'asdfghjkl' line.
JKK I noticed the battery as well. I hope its fixable by a bios update. Seems odd that Dell would do something like this.
the Dell is dullthe keyboard makes it look like a "childs 1st laptop" made by Hasbro that you would buy at Toys'R'Usthe funny thing is, and im not even trying to be insulting, i absolutely knew Dell would blow it their 1st try in this market
i dont like that device caus the keyboard is too bad no fn keys. hope they fix it in the next one.
@0xyg3n tried to find a workaround on the battery gauge with no luck, as for anon and jtj, as much as you might think not having the Fn keys sucks, the marginal difference in key size overall makes the Dell much more comfortable to me than the 901.
What I don't understand:Dell did make a lot of user-tests with different kind of keyboards. They spent a lot of money on that and came up with that one.Why they just did not ask the experts commenting here, that just take a look at the keyboard and say "Oh that's crap".
Dear jkk first of all I like to thank you for your great reviews, I think thjat you have the number one site concerning netbooks.And now the million $$$ question: you have all three popular netbooks, the Acer Aspire one, the Asus eee pc 901 and the Dell mini 9. So wich one is the best according to you?
I've tested this program. http://www.mioplanet.com/products/batterymeter/It seems to work ok. Its not a greatest program but some people might like to use it.
in my opinion Eee PC is still superior!!!Asus has invented Eee and everybody else copied and instead of enhancing since they got all the time to learn from Asus mistakes and users requirements they went and made stupid mini laptops.Viva Eee PC
lol i love how you said that you were used to eeepc scrolling :)the side scrolling on the mousepad is very annoying imo
nice post really liked it.
