I purchased this netbook after months of shopping around, I own a 17" Dell laptop, but it was just to much to bring everywhere, and now that summer is here I like taking my motorcycle to work, making the 17" even more daunting.

I decided on the 7990BK in black to match my Studio 1737, I've owned Dell computers for years and never had a problem so I felt this netbook would be a safe bet.

Opening the box to this computer is really impressive, its very small, and actually very well designed. I removed the computer from the packaging and got right to work, removing the Dell installed programs and add-ons. I gotta say this thing is pretty fast for a 1.66GHZ processor.

I installed a new copy of Office 2007, and connected my external HDD to copy my work files over. All in all I'm very impressed with this machine, and it took alot to get it to choke up, but it never stopped, I put it through some tough testing last night and it didn't disappoint. With itunes, multiple excel created programs, 2 word docs, a desktop full of gadgets, websites, and movie playing in media player I was still able to play a few games of solitaire. This showed me I bought a pretty capable computer!

I do think Ill be upgrading to Windows 7 pro though, as Starter seems a bit lacking in features. I also think with another 1gb of RAM this computer will be a little powerhouse...especially with what I need it for.

I must mention the selling point of the keyboard being almost full size is reason enough to get this netbook! I have pretty big hands and most of the mini's I've tried were an inconvenience to say the least. Dell however got it right with the keyboard on the Inspiron Mini, its literally like typing on your desktop keyboard...

I was after a new netbook (owned an EEE 701)and thought I would go with the Dell this time around.

I found the Dell the most attractive package in early 2010 for the follwoing reasons:

1. comes with the new Atom 450 (should be a little more nergy efficient)

2. the 6-cell battery gives me more air time than the 3-cells batteries in so many other netbooks.

3. the keyboard is a pleasure to type on quickly.

4. the case is not only pretty but sturdy. No noticable flexing of any kind under pressure.

5. the screen is nice, colors vibrant.

6. touchpad is of a nice and usable size.

I've been using the Mini now for a couple of days and I'm not disappointed. I use it for light web surfing, emails, and typing (the classic core apps of a netbook). In addition, I use it for streaming music under my Zune subscription.

My expectations are met. Windows Starter only seems a bit of a bottleneck in terms of included (or lacking) features compared to Home or Professional. I couldn't figure out how to back up the Mini via a mapped network drive and as it stands, it must be a missing (or blocked) feature due to Windows 7 Starter Edition. Upgrading seems the better choice if one really wants to use the Mini for sharing and streaming at home.

I recently purchased a new desktop for one of my employees from Dell and was offered to buy this laptop for $99. Might as well try it for $100 and was I glad I did. I hated doing any test runs on my VAIO Z laptop as that is my personal laptop. Visualization is great and everything but call me old fashion as I rather have a solid dedicated OS running for work testing. This laptop is perfect sized for my dedicated testing. I dual booted it with two version of Windows 7, one for my personal use such as music listening and web browsing and the other Windows 7 purely for testing purposes. Can't do that with my VAIO Z as I am limited on space due to my SSD drive. Onto the Pros and Cons.

-SMALL size and very portable
-Big enough hard drive at 250GB, larger than my SSDs so great for music and pictures.
-I had the 2GB ram version and would only recommend the 2gb as 1gb is simply not enough and will slow down the system.
-Great loud speakers while jamming to music. It's the type of decent loud while missing mids and bass but I am satisfy with the level of loudness. Much better than my VAIO
-A nearly fullsize keyboard. It is not that far off from the real thing.
-Amazing battery life. I don't even bring the charger with me anymore.

-The VGA port is a little smaller than normal for some reason. I had to force it in. Same with removal. I had to hook it up to my KVM switch for ease of access while in my computer room.
-It came with alot of bloatware even though it wasn't much in the Add/Remove Program. I ALWAYS do a clean install on EVERY computer I purchase. It sped it up considerably. While not the fastest, it does get things done.

I love the performance that is packed into this little computer. I would like for Windows Basic to allow custom desktops but I guess this helps the performance. I love its small size and feather weight. You can easily carry it in a pocketbook or large jacket pocket. We have had it for over a month and have found no issues so far. Also it was surprising that there was very little bloatware installed. My other Dell Laptop is 4 years old and works as good as when it was new. I hope this one lasts as long.
