Just like many other manufacturers, Dell now announced plans to take a piece of the sub-$500 low-cost notebook market, by releasing its first low-cost 8.9-inch mini-laptop made by Compal Electronics. Compal will initially ship 200,000-300,000 notebook computers to Dell each month, a Compal official said, confirming the existense of such a product. Compal Electronics, the world's second-largest contract manufacturer of notebook computers by revenue after Quanta Computer Inc., aims to ship 1 million to 2 million low-cost notebook computers to Dell in 2008, the official added. Specifications of the new Dell mini-laptop are unknown, but first batches are expected to ship in early June, the same time when Intel's new Atom processors are set to become available.

Hmmmm.... want specs!

Looking for a new laptop to replace my aging P3, battery life and media are all i care about (large screen not neccesary, as long as its a wide)

Lots of brands are offering these kinda things lately, but at least with dell i know they'll reach aus

Dell offers a $499.99 laptop as it stands. With a C2D T2350 (or something similar) 1GB DDR2, 120GB HDD, integrated Intel GMA930 graphics and I believe its either a 12.1 or 14.1 inch widescreen. Guess they are trying to corner additional markets...

Hey, cool, another P3 owner! They rock, but are too slow. At least they're kind on battery life. I'm waiting for a company to release an Atom based subnotebook, below $400. If Dell gets to it first, then all the better for me! I like Dells, even if they're useless at OC'ing.
Hopefully this one will have a CD drive.

my battery shat itself, lasts about an hour using nothing more than MSN. I too want an intel atom system... as long as its cheap, can hopefully run vista premium (aero or not) and last 3+ hours (idle/light use) its a win for me.
