Reviews for the Dell Inspiron Mini 1012

40% Dell Mini 1012 10.1-inch Netbook PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Dell's Mini 1012 is essentially a laptop that is stuck in design and features from over a year ago. This wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't priced near $400 which is well above many similarly equipped netbooks. It does have a few improvements such as Windows 7 Home Premium and an HDMI port but it just doesn't make up for the various shortcomings.

The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 (1012) netbook sells for a price of Rs. 17,900 on Dell's website. We think it's an attractive price to pay for a stylish, good-looking 10-inch netbook with standard performance, very good keyboard and excellent battery life. The netbook's online data backup service is an added bonus. Between the Acer Aspire One 532h and the Dell Inspiron Mini 10, we wholeheartedly recommend the Inspiron Mini 10 for its better looks, design, and battery life. You should consider the Lenovo Ideapad S10-3 for its slightly better keyboard and useful bundled proprietary software, but it doesn't match up to the Dell Inspiron Mini 10's battery life and great price. Overall, the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 netbook is the best 10-inch netbook to buy right now.

Dell Mini 10 (1012) review
Source: CNet English
Dell has expanded its Inspiron Mini range of netbooks with a re-invention of the Mini 10, also known as the 1012. The Dell Mini 1012 has some well-implemented features that make it stand out above the sea of competing netbooks. We like the great display, big keyboard and fantastic build quality. It's a little on the pricey side, but if you're in the market for a good quality netbook, the 1012 is unlikely to disappoint.

The price of the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 starts from Rs. 15,900 (delivery charges extra) on the Dell India website. This comes with 1GB RAM and 160GB hard drive with XP pre-installed. The pricing is pretty fair. The high-end version, with a higher-resolution (HD) display, 2GB RAM, 320GB hard disk and Windows 7 Home Basic also carries a value for money tag of Rs. 20,000.

At a price of Rs. 16,800 this model has some very clear advantages besides a nice low price point; as can be seen from the results. It's got nice battery life, considering it's a 3 cell model. It lasted more than 3 and half hours in our Battery Eater Pro Classic test, and for normal usage we got about 5 hours 20 minutes. The Graphics are better with the 3150. We could watch upto 720p video quite easily, with very little issues of stutter and frame coughing.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration). These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
N450:

Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
10.1":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
74.3%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
