===== It's Comfortable =====
This thing is a dream to use. Most netbooks are unusable to me. What stings me most with netbooks is the keyboard. Most netbooks' have either tiny keyboards, or their keyboards just aren't typing-friendly. I'm used to the low-profile, "chiclet-style" scissor-switch keyboards that are (or at least used to be) most common in older laptops, and in fact I love them. I'm referring to the type of keys that are flat and flush with the palm rest, and have a little flange or lip on the edges (where the space is between the keys).
To see exactly what I mean, check out the close ups photos of another Dell Mini (on the right side of this page: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00361G10S?tag=a52-20&ie=UTF8#productDescription). Such a design makes them spill-resistant, but also makes typing a breeze, as they won't inflict wrist strain due to tall keys or keys that require more force to press. So, this thing is certainly a dream to use.
===== It's Innovative =====
The touch pad is small, yet clever, allowing you to press down on the bottom-left/bottom-right corners of the pad to left-click/right-click (respectively), rather than wasting space by implementing separate buttons. This keeps the overall size of the netbook more compact than other brands. The Mini 1012 was smudge free, thanks to their use of an oil-resistant softly-textured palm-rest.Read more ›
This netbook is absolutely perfect in size, weight, and balance for casual surfing on your lap.Read more ›
The good - sexy looking, well built, sounds surprisingly well for a netbook of this size.
The bad - touch pad has a mind of it's own. Can't upgrade operating system (XP home to XP pro).
The ugly: For your own sanity DO NOT CALL DELL TECH. SUPPORT!
i used it for a while with the installed win 7 and it worked well enough. after trying a few linux live distros, i settled on linux mint. i get about 6 hr battery life on the win 7, and about the same with linux mint. everything works out of the box in linux mint except wifi. the fix for that is that you connect to the internet via NIC and download the module for the wifi, and then enable it. that's it. other than that, it's no muss, no fuss.
i have no complaints about the performance or resolution or anything. comes out of suspend and hibernate well, runs fast enough for a netbook, has a lot of hdd space, boots fast, etc.
short review, but i tested everything and it all worked. so great investment IMHO
