A few quick things from me… we're introducing it with Vista Home Basic initially–both Ubuntu and XP will be offered on these things by the end of the year. While there are some similarities with its smaller brother the Inspiron Mini 9, the Mini 12 will feature a larger screen 12" screen with a maximum resolution of 1280×800, a larger keyboard, Atom processor options that are smaller and a bit more  energy-efficient than the one the Mini 9 uses and hard drive options of 40GB, 60GB or 80GB (depending on region) as opposed to SSD drives.
