Dell says Psion netbook trademark is bogus

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on February 20th, 2009

Psion NetbookThe word netbook is a generic term that many consumers and computer makers have been using since 2007 to describe the hoards of small, cheap notebooks on the market. Intel uses the term in its advertising as do many other manufacturers like Dell. I mentioned a few weeks back that Psion had been successful in proving to Google that it owned the trademark on the term netbook.

Dell is standing up for its right to use the term netbook along with everyone else with a filing that claims that Psion’s trademark is no good. According to Dell, the trademark is no good for three reasons. Dell says that Psion has abandoned the trademark and does not intend to resume bona fide trade using the mark.

Dell gets official with Inspiron Mini 10 netbook

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on February 20th, 2009

Dell Inspiron Mini 10I really like netbooks, the small systems are perfect for the light work I and many others need to do on the road. Moreover, they are cheap, small and light making them easy to carry and fit into the budget. I haven’t used a Dell netbook yet, but I may consider one now that a new 10-inch version is official.

I was never a big fan of the Mini 9 or Mini 12 netbooks; they were too small and too large. As the antagonist of the three bears would put it, the Mini 10 is just right. Dell says that we will be able to buy the Mini 10 directly from Dell.com on February 26 and that QVC is offering pre-orders on the netbook right now.

Dell Offers Big SSDs for Small Price

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on January 20th, 2009

Dell XPS M1330I have a Dell XPS M1330 and when I ordered my laptop you could get a small 64GB SSD for around $1000 if memory serves. Like all things tech, as time goes by prices get cheaper and that holds true for the new SSD options Dell has on two of its notebooks.

Shoppers interested in the Dell XPS M1330 or XPS M1730 can add the new Samsung 256GB SSD to the notebooks at a bargain price (for a SSD anyway). The drive in question is the new MLC Samsung 256GB SSD.

Dell’s ultra-thin Adamo laptop gets shown offNot long ago Dell’s Adamo got official at CES today. The laptop was presented oh so briefly in all it’s anorexic glory and then it left the stage without any specs or even a price. So we still don’t know much. Just that it’s seriously thin and represents the new luxury design franchise in Dell’s laptop lineup. We’ll let you know more when we know more.

Dell Adamo rumors not so confirmed after all

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on December 26th, 2008

Dell AdamoThe MacBook Air was introduced this year and despite all of the limitations imposed on the machine by its thin profile, many a Mac fan and Windows user alike were impressed. The image of the thin little machine in an envelope is one that has now been copied by many notebook manufacturers.

We talked a bit about Dell’s Adamo teaser page before. It was widely reported that it had been confirmed by Dell that Adamo would be a MacBook Air competitor after a post on one of The New York Times’ blogs.

Dell’s “Adamo” could be lighter, thinner than MacBook Air

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on December 18th, 2008

Dell’s “Adamo” could be lighter, thinner than MacBook AirHave a look at this teaser site and while you’re at it, this site. Looks like Dell has a laptop coming that could be both lighter and thinner than the MacBook Air. A Dell that is sleek? Is that possible? Apparently.

Tatelman, Dell’s VP of consumer sales and marketing seems to have given it away, when asked about whether or not Dell had an Air-like product in store. Tatelman’s reaction? His “mouth gaped open and his eyes darted away from my face”. Tatelman then said:
“I think we need to get some iconic products out there, so people associate Dell’s brand with other things.” That would be goodbye to clunky, and hello to sleek.

Dell charging more for Windows XP

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on December 7th, 2008

Dell charging more for Windows XPDell is offering Windows XP on certain home PCs again instead of Vista, but you’ll pay for it. It will cost you another $150 for the older operating system. The Inspiron 1525 laptop and 530 desktop allow you to configure the system with XP, apparently taking advantage of the downgrade loophole normally reserved for business users.

I guess that means that Dell is still getting backlash regarding Vista after all this time. Many consumers are still convinced that the OS is no good and they want a Windows version they can trust. What do you guys think? Do you prefer XP or Vista?
