What, pray tell, is this? It's Dell's new Inspiron Duo, a 10" tablet that opens up and twirls its screen to transform itself into a netbook. Craziest of all? They're saying it'll be available before the end of the year.


Dell showed off the crazy little guy, which runs Windows 7 Premium and packs a dual-core Atom N550 processor, at the second day keynote of Intel's IDF conference—you can catch a video of its transformation in action over at Engadget. There's no word if they've made any concessions to make its version of Windows 7 more tablet friendly, but this Inspiron gets kudos for audacity alone. [Engadget]



Amazing amount of hate for Dell. They are continuously bashed for being nothing more than a simple OEM supplier and yet when they try something different, good or bad, they get paned. I recently purchased a Dell Studio 15 laptop for my brother for $1200 Canadian and it has a Core i7, 6GB DDR3 ram, a 1GB video card, 500GB HDD, Blu-Ray built in, N band wi-fi, webcam and a beautiful customized etching on the lid. It's run quietly, there is barely any heat and its slim and light. It's a wonderful machine that Apple would have charged me twice as much for.

I have two Dells from 2004 which are still running.

What a horrible company indeed.
