Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Dell announced an updated version of its Ubuntu-ready Inspiron Mini 10 netbook, using Intel's new Atom N450 processor and an optional Broadcom "Crystal HD" media accelerator. The Mini 10 now sports a redesigned keyboard, optional HD video support, and up to 9.5 hours of battery life, says the company.

"Announced in February, the Dell Mini 10 appears to be the one of the more popular netbooks on the market, along with the similar, scaled down Mini 10v. The Dell Mini models are also some of the few netbooks from mainstream PC vendors that currently offer Linux (Ubuntu) as a pre-installed option.

"Still providing a 10.1-inch, 1024 x 600 display, the Mini 10 now features a redesigned keyboard with sculpted keys and "a textured, smudge-resistant palm rest," according to Dell. However, the key changes have occurred under the hood. The Mini 10 is one of several new netbooks that feature the N450, one of three "Pineview" Atom models announced today."
