back to article Tesco reveals unannounced Dell 12in netbook

Tesco appears to have leaked details of Dell's next mini laptop. But while some sites a jumping for joy at the inadvertent bean spillage, we're not sure the suggested spec makes sense for a netbook.

12 inch by 12 inch

that would make it MUCH bigger than a 12 inch screen. My 15.4 laptop is only 12 inches wide. come on, pythagoras could have told you that centuries ago!

They also reveal another bargain

Noticed this yesterday and they also have a listing for a Dell Inspiron N270 which looks like a standard mini-9 with linux for the bargain price of £229. Also due on Oct 6th. If that's true then it's made my mind up about which netbook to buy.

@myself

Checked the site again after reading this article and the price of the Inspiron N270 has been upped to £249, still cheaper than the £269 suggested in the press. Not quite the bargain it was looking yesterday though.

Consume your media where ever you are

I'm sorta new at this Engrisch speaking business, but is that "where ever" good form? Or is it fine, and same as "wherever"? What ever...

Mmm.

The temptation to pick an Aspire One or one of these wee Dell jobs up is getting hard to control these days.

Must....wait....for....AMD mobile chip....to...surface before making a choice.

Tesco has cheapest Acer Aspire One though ...

The AOA A110L 512Mb 8Gb is available for £198 plus you get 396 id card points (worth almost £4 8-)

Tesco not totally hopeless

But I wouldn't really recommend them for actual computers.

Webcams, mice, keyboards, that level, they're OK. The stuff does what it says on the box (and there's other cheap stuff which doesn't).

yes lets buy our laptops from Tesco so that local businesses will not be able to compete and our town centres will fill with charity shops.

Bugger, too late.

PC World

Recently bought myself a Dell Lappy from PC World as I needed one sharpish, and when i registered it online later in the week, it was showing as being bought from Tescos. So even if you don't buy one there, Dell still seems to think that you did.

;o)

@PC World

Probably did come from Tesco - some PC World drone probably sent out to buy half a dozen (that's six to all those post decimalisation) 0.5 dozen?
