Tesco Now Selling Dell Mini 10 Netbook For Under £350

Dell's latest Netbook turned up online not on the PC manufacturer's website but on a Tesco Direct webpage for a mere £349 and including 349 clubcard points.

The laptop comes with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU, 1GB memory, a 160GB hard disk drive, Windows XP Home and a 10-inch screen capable of displaying 1024x600 pixels which should be enough for 720p HD viewing.

Engadget reports that the netbook comes with an Apple like multitouch touchpad, built-in GPS and optional WWAN although Tesco's feature page doesn't show any hint of all these goodies.

At £349, it is expensive and weighs a rather heavy 1.3Kg (ed: netbooks of the yore weighed less than 1Kg). The device made an appearance at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this month and as far as we can tell, Tesco has it in stock.

Dell hasn't yet release any further details about its Adamo laptop range which is said to compete with the Macbook Air and to a lesser extent with Sony's Vaio P series.

We would almost certainly prefer to add another £50 and buy the Acer Aspire 2930 which is a proper laptop from Misco. It weighs in at 2.1Kg, 800g heavier than the Dell Mini 10, but comes with a proper optical storage, a more powerful Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB memory and 250GB hard disk drive. Given the exceptional value for money crammed in this pint sized computer, no wonder it is currently Misco's most popular laptop.
