Hey I was wondering what you would do if you were the person who designed the dell mini? How would you make them better? What parts would you use? How big would it be? How would you make it better?
I'd take an 11z and upgrade to a low voltage Intel Core 2 Duo SP9600, add a western digital 1 tb hard drive, give it 4 gbs of memory, put in a better battery that doesn't stick out the back...It kinda ruins the profile...Hell I'd even take a small improvement like a low profile 4 cell battery. Add the Windows 7 ultimate os...64 bit of course. Make sure it has bluetooth and a wireless n-card, Change the colors a bit...My obsidian 11z sucks when it comes to finger prints...Maybe go with a flatter black and upgrade the speakers and finally add a tv tuner to the thing...I loved that feature in the mini 10 but decided I wanted more memory so went with the 11z.
Well that's what I'd do but I doubt some things I'd want to do are possible. adding the 1 tb hd would probably make the netbook a little bit thicker but it would be worth it if you could add a slot loading optical drive. I'd love to see the netbooks get to the point where they were just as powerful as regular notebooks but just miniturized.
So that's what I'd like to see. What about you?How would you design a mini?
