Dell Mini 9 with 32GB SSD

Echoing a recent trend of Japan-first launches, Dell today introduced an option for the Inspiron Mini 9 netbook to add a 32GB solid-state drive. The capacity is twice that of any previous version and lets users choose to preload Office 2007 Personal to take advantage of the newly available free space. Dell's expansion comes as Microsoft has eased up on the storage levels of SSDs that can use Windows XP.

The system can now also be custom-ordered with red or pink outer lids as a more colorful alternative to the black and white shells available with the standard version.

All the new options will be ready on the 18th for the Japanese introduction. An example system with the 32GB drive costs the equivalent of $570 with a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of memory and Windows XP. A US launch hasn't been mentioned but may follow soon. [via Impress]
