I still use my two (identical) Inspiron 4000. They cost $1675 each when I bought them. They are heavy duty but prices sure go down.
Here’s a question: given the vagueness of definition and the trend towards larger screen sizes in general, how soon do you think Dell will start calling its new $399 Inspiron 15 configuration a “netbook?” Seriously, it’s not like the 2.16GHz Celeron and 2GB of RAM running Vista are going to majorly outgun the usual 1.6GHz Atom / XP setup, and the pricing is about the same as nicer 10-inch netbook, so we can totally see some marketing droid at Dell getting a bright idea. Any bets on this happening? We’d put the odds at 50/50.
