The Mini 9 NetBook: Dell’s Hardware as a Service Experiment?

,----[ Quote ]
| Whether you’re new to hardware as a service (HaaS) or a true HaaS veteran,
| keep an eye on the emerging NetBook market. NetBooks are low-cost
| sub-notebooks from companies like Dell, Asus and Sylvania. They typically
| cost $275 to $400 or so, and run Windows or Linux.
|
| But eventually, I think NetBooks will be free within HaaS agreements. Here’s
| why.
|
| During the OSCON (Open Source Conference) in July, Canonical Marketing
| Manager Gerry Carr told me he expected some broadband providers to
| potentially introduce NetBooks for free as part of service contracts.
| NetBooks, Carr said, could eventually become like cell phones: You’d get them
| for free from your service provider.

Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Review

| Dell wants you to believe the Inspiron Mini 9 is "your new best friend."
| Well, kiddies, the Mini 9 is a fantastic mobile companion that helps you stay
| connected and makes your life easier without breaking the bank. However, I
| can't shake the feeling that the Mini 9 is more like "the kid you're friendly
| with at the lunch table, but isn't your BFF."
