In a pretty awesome one day Cyber Monday deal the nearly brand new Dell Inspiron Mini 9 that went on sale not to long ago is now getting an instant discount putting this little big boy toy at under $300.

The unit normally sells for $349 but for Cyber Monday only they are offering an instant $50 savings putting it at a solid $299 a great deal for a nettop for checking mail etc while your on the go. The only sad part in my eyes is it is the version without windows.

But it comes with the normal goodies that nettops are known for, namely...

  • Intel Atom 1.6GHz CPU, 512MB RAM.
  • 4GB Solid State Drive, Intel graphics.
  • Glossy 8.9-inch LED lit 1280x600 LCD.
  • 802.11b/g WiFi, 10/100 Ethernet.
  • USB, SVGA, 3-in-1 card reader.
  • Ubuntu Linux 8.04.1.
  • Personally I'd be all over the nettop fad if they would take the time to shove in a nVidia or ATI graphics card instead of the intel. I mean really the processors not bad you can get 1gb of ram the size is wicked, but the graphics power makes it a true joke and limits its capability to surfing and mail primarily, which sucks.
