Forums: MacBook Air/Mini 9

Forum roundup: A hot topic in the MacNN forums today revolves around a discussion about the differences between the MacBook Air and the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 notebooks. One forum goer is looking for a novel writing application and finds some suggestions from others. Mac Elite, iomatic, is looking for an iPhone hiking application that would be able to provide proper navigation in generally uncharted areas. A deal on a 2TB AcomData external hard drive is the topic of conversation in this thread. Advice on where to find a new Ethernet card for a Power Mac G3 can be found here.

    2 Things

    First, its a Dell fer gawd's sake. Second, it runs Windows. W-I-N-D-O-W-S! Might as well compare sofa slippers to an aardvark.

    Leave Poor Dell Alone

    Poor Dell has been beaten up all week. The Dell Mini 9 won't be winning any awards in the netbook world.
    I am not sure it compares in any way to the MacBook Air, except that they are both smaller versions of their respective brands.
    Maybe a discussion on how they don't compare would be interesting.
    Dell is "in it to win it", and plans to make deals with a telco to produce mobile internet devices.
    Dell should work on the basics first, including customer service.
