Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Details.pngComputers are continuing to get more and more powerful, but a lot of people don’t need that extra computing power that the advances in technology bring to the table. At home most people only do things like check their email, chat with friends, and other basic tasks. Dell has recognized this, and the new Dell Inspiron Mini 9 will fill that need.

The Dell Inspiron Mini starts at a reasonable $349 price if you want Ubuntu Linux for the operating system, otherwise the XP version starts at $399. The laptop comes with a Solid State Drive (SSD) in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB sizes. That’s more than enough for most people.

The computer is 9.13 x 1.25 x 6.77 inches and weighs in at a mere 2.28 pounds. It’s definitely a good size, and to sweeten the deal even more you can grab the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 for just $99 when you purchase a select laptop in the U.S.:

If you can wait until 6 a.m. Central tomorrow, Sept. 5, you’ll be able to get a Mini for only $99 with the purchase of a Studio 15, XPS M1530, or XPS M1330 laptop through 6 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9 (U.S. only).

The XP version of the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 will start shipping on September 19th, and the Ubuntu version will ship on October 10th.
