Default The End? Dell Quietly Removes Dell Mini - 12-13-2011, 04:06 PM

It was sure a long run,
but it looks like the Mini's days are over at least on the Canadian and US sites ?

Yeah we just picked up a second 1012 and got a killer deal on it with the higher resolution screen out of the outlet. I saw they were adding more to the inventory, so if you want one, better grab it now....

its seems that Minis have just about lived out their time, more focus seems to be towards tablets nowadays and I wouldnt be surprised if Dell comes out with something similar to the IPAD soon which hopefully will be better than the Dell Duo (which was a really cool idea and design but they could have gone a little further with it)...time will tell....just glad I got one of the few 1010's around with 2gb of RAM (lol)..should increase retail value a little?...not that I would ever sell it, only got like 30hrs on it in 2+yrs, but seriously I think my next purchase will be an IPAD (GOD, I hate Apple, but they are so cool), not sure if I will go for the IPAD 2 or wait til spring 2012 for the IPAD 3 (supposed to have 2x the resolution due out a day before or on Steve Job's birthday).....who knows?
