Oh, netbooks: Mini 12 spotted on Dell's Web site


Looks like Dell is getting ready to release the Mini 12, a netbook in the Mini 9 mold, but, you know, with a 12-inch screen.

CMS Report speculates that the netbook could be released as early as this week or next. Dell.com already has a few references to the Mini 12, including a non-functioning link to its user manual.

Considering the Mini 9 was well-received, there’s no reason not to think this Mini 12 wouldn’t be similarly embraced. Unless, of course, you’re still a little gun shy when it comes to netbooks, like me. Pry my desktop from my cold, dead hands, I say.
