The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 (or Dell Inspiron 1010 as it’s sometimes referred to) was just made available fore pre-order last week, initially through QVC, but now it’s currently available for pre-order through the Dell Home and Home Office Store, with a tentative ship date of April 6, 2009.
If you can’t wait to see how it’s put together, some of the online service documentation (also available for download) shows the inner-workings of the new 10-inch Intel Atom-powered device.
Among the highlights:
– The TV Tuner card (next to the SATA HDD bay, under the left palmrest)
– The Hard Drive, while it’s buried underneath the keyboard, doesn’t look to be all that hard to replace or upgrade with a larger capacity drive. It’s in a tray, and it looks like only the battery and keyboard need to be pulled and then you have full access. It even has a pull-tab to help remove it.
– The SIM card slot (assuming your model has one) is directly behind the battery, and apparently easy to get to.
