Dell Inspiron Mini 9 goes Head to Head with Asus Eee PC 900
For some of you who are in doubt about which is better between the 2 netbooks, here are some ideas that might be of help.
Performance wise, Dell Inspiron Mini 9 might outdo the Asus Eee PC 900. Inspiron sports 1.6Ghz Intel Atom while the Eee PC 900 uses 900Mhz Celeron. Since Atom consumes lesser power than Celeron, Inspiron has an advantage on this side as well.
In terms of Graphics, Inspiron has the Intel GMA 950 chipset while the Eee PC 900 has the Intel GMA 900. So it’s clear that Inspiron wins this side as well. Though I guess that it won’t be that BIG issue here.
The Eee PC’s main defense against the Inspiron Mini 9 is definitely the cheaper price, $399 vs $474. Not if you will buy Studio 15, XPS M1530 or XPS M1330 laptop through 6 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9 (U.S. only) because the Inspiron will then cost $99.
The Eee PC 900 is a bit lighter and smaller than Inspiron. Just a bit. In terms of other specs, such as the webcam, USB ports, screen sizes, etc… both netbooks almost are very similar.
