Dell puts out Nickelodeon Inspiron Mini 10

updated 05:40 pm EDT, Tue August 11, 2009

Dell Mini 10 Nickelodeon

Dell in an unusual evening launch revealed its first non-education PC aimed at kids. A Nickelodeon Edition of the Inspiron Mini 10v will have a "slime" color scheme both on the lid and palm rest as well as a custom, Stardock-designed Windows XP skin with colors and icons themed around the TV network's shows. It also gets multiple links to special web portals on Nickelodeon's website and an updating desktop widget.

To assuage parents, it will also have a 15-month subscription to McAfee's security suite and LoJack's anti-theft software.

Dell hasn't said whether any of the internal hardware will change from the existing 10v, which normally has a 1.6GHz Atom chip, 1GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive and a 10-inch, 1024x600 display. The Texas PC builder also hasn't explained any price increases for the Nickelodeon Edition or when it will ship, though it does say lid graphics based on iCarly and Spongebob Squarepants will be available in its Design Studio for custom orders.
