Dell Inspiron 910, probably the second most rumoured and anticipated netbook after the Eee PC, today showed more of its specs. A full featured 910 web documentation has made its way to the public, detailing the new "mini Inspiron" and its internals. According to it, 910 will sell with a 1.5GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 512 or 1024MB 800MHz DDR2 RAM, 8.9-inch 1024x600 WLED display and support SSDs up to 16GB. All this will weight 2.20lbs (0.99kg) and wear the Dell badge, a fact you can't skip easily. As usual the mini will use 32-bit Windows XP SP2 as primary OS, specs also say about Ubuntu 8.04 preinstalled possibility. Other last minute details note at August 22nd as official release date. On that date we'll also know the official price of "mini me".

I wonder if the recent shakeup with that homebrew low voltage AMD Athlon 64 will reach corporate ears. It's apparent AMD is sitting on something golden and if they put some effort into it, it sounds like they could kill the Atom. Am I the only one who's surprised that Intel didn't pull more tech from their Core series?

I've heard that people think these miniature laptops are just a fad and that their time is up. I, for one, don't agree and think the UMPC market has yet to take off and will be soon.
It seems to me like these are useful for everything from coffee shop web browsing to at portable media and entertainment to mobile network administration. Throw in Skype and you have something that could replace my cell phone with about 100% less gimp and 100% more customization. $400 for an iPhone, or $400 for an XP or Ubuntu themed UMPC?

People like that don't know what they're talking about. :laugh: To me, the barrier to most people buying laptops has been an excessive price -- making them cheaper will do nothing but encourage people to start grabbing them up.

I'm really looking forward to this new Dell mini-laptop -- if the reports about the funky "quotation mark key" (I've heard they moved it from its usual position right next to the semicolon to below the period :wtf:) turn out to be false, it's probably going to be the one that I get it... as long as the memory is expandable. :D

EGGcellent news-hunting, Malware. I was about to jump for an Asus Eee 901 but have decided to wait until Dell releases their mini-notebook/netbook/UMPC. I've been begging them to release more info (timeframe etc.), nothing. If they don't release it before the end of this month though I can't wait any longer and will have to go for the Eee PC.

Remember that the LV AMD 64 is actually a BIG chip, not for netbooks.

Anon delivers.. *cough* I mean, xvi delivers.
Upon further inspection, it seems the article was posted by Tom's Hardware, but it's better than something user submitted. It's certainly an interesting concept and it puts a little spring in my AMD-fanboy step. :laugh:\

You're right, but this is a very cheap processor that was not originally designed for this purpose. I think if AMD did a major die shrink and actually attempted to turn this into a low voltage ultra mobile processor, the results may be surprising. Like I said, I'm shocked that Intel apparently didn't apply it's Core series architecture to the Atom.


Edit: Yes, another AMD-fanboy. I still give respect to Intel. Don't flog me.

I was able to get my Socket 754 Sempron 64 3400+ down to an estimated 35 watts 38 watts on somewhere around 1.1 volts at it's stock 2 GHz . If anyone is interested, I'd be willing to try again at 1 GHz (estimated 18 watts 20 watts at 1.1v).

Measurements would be rather homebrew, system power being measured by a built in wattage meter on my CoolerMaster Real Power 451w PSU. If I get enough interest, I'll grab one of those Kill-a-Watt things. (They look like fun! XD)

Edit: Meh. I'll do it now anyways. See if I can get a quick screenie up.

THX for the info my next HTPC might be an AMD again as i remember the good old day's with my XP Mobile 2800+ and CPUID :laugh:

honestly i thought that when i saw asus with the eee pc, why not underclock bigger cpu's like core2duo ect.the smallest one's are cheap(er) these days and feature rich, only the chipset would be a problem if it comes to reliability :rolleyes:

why didn't intel&AMD optimise their manufacturing process? instead of searching/inventig something new? that would make it easy for both sides consumer and seller as board are availible and some chipset's. Bios update voilà, htpc out of (maybe) old parts :laugh:

Yeah, they should get a sort of old CPU like a Core Duo 1.6 GHz, use 45 nm fab, reduce the L2 cache to cut prices, optimize the power usage, and lower the voltage and core speed heaps. A 1 GHz Core Duo would outperform any other CPU in the market range, and would still have low power draws.
