Default So..who's interested in the Inspiron Duo? - 09-17-2010, 02:42 PM

Personally, I'm very excited at the prospect of a Inspiron Duo! I just wanna hear some more info on its specs! We already know it has a Dual Core N550 Atom CPU, so it's gonna so its' pretty coming out with the best netbook hardware at the moment.

Android Dual Boot would be awesome, Android for play, Windows for work!

Please do not send me support requests via PM.

I'd be shocked if it wasn't cheaper than an iPad. I think I want one - just have to figure out which of my current laptops I'm going to get rid of to pay for it...

Mini 10v (1011): Passion Purple, N270, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, XP Home
Inspiron 11z (1110): Passion Purple, SU4100, 2 GB RAM, 250 GB HDD, Win7
Alienware M11x R1: Cosmic Black, SU7300, 4 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, Win7
Latitude 2110: Blue Ribbon, N470, 2 GB RAM, 250 GB HDD, Touchscreen, Win7
Zino HD (400): True Blue, Athlon X2 3250e, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD, Win7
Plus a few others not discussed here...

+2 for the taking the cautions approach - yep like the idea think it has merit but it will all hinge on the responsiveness of the touch screen and how it performs with win 7.

I'm thinking I may want one depending on price. Also, I hope that Dell doesn't screw up the launch of this as bad as they did the US Streak.

I'm definitely interested in the Inspiron Duo. I'm just hoping that there is a screen option for 1366x768. The Atom processor is somewhat of a concern, however I must admit I haven't used the dual core N550 Atom.

I have an Inspiron 11z currently and have been very pleased with it all around. Hope it performs as well/better than the 11z w/ a 720P screen and i'll be a happy camper!
