Dell E Due August for 299

The upcoming Dell E mini notebook may finaly make its appearance next month and may be one of the least expensive, claim alleged insiders. The 8.9-inch portable will have the same 1.6GHz Atom processor, Linux, and flag storage storage of many similar devices but will purportedly sell in August for just $299, or $80 less than the Acer Aspire One that has held the price crown in the class for just a matter of weeks.

The most recent leak suggests Dell will reach the low price through a model known as the E Classic, which will have just 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and Linux; the more popular model will likely be the more expensive E Video with doubled RAM, storage, and a built-in webcam.

A related model, the E Slim, should target the opposite end of the class with a 12-inch screen and traditional disk-based storage.

    WoW finally

    Finally a use for Dell computers. Make them really small and cheap. A great nitch market that needs filling. For on the go businessman and students but it needs to be easily sinkable to a larger computer once you bring it back home.

    Just a thought. :-)
