After eagle-eyed Gizmodo editor Brian Lam spotted the notebook, Mr. Dell gave him an exclusive closeup look at the thing, and a little later Dell officially confirmed the subnotebook's existence. No details on specs yet, though the company is saying the product is a response to a call they made to the user community to help the company design a mini laptop.
But if you go by the initial impression of the blog community, the unnamed mini-Dell might be one generation behind.
Why? The screen seems a bit-too small (it looks like 7- 7 ½ inches), and looks a bit chunky compared to the newest Eee PC.
There's a Windows key on the released picture, and Dell has a long history with Microsoft, but it wouldn’t surprise us if they also offered a Linux option.
I looks like the laptop includes a web cam, average-sized keys (edging all the way towards the end of the case) and as Lam pointed out, three USB ports, a card reader, a VGA port and an Ethernet port.
