Dell has been talking up its interesting convertible notebook called the Inspiron Duo for a while now. The machine isn't like your typical convertible netbook where the entire LCD rotates around for tablet mode on a hinge. The screen of the Duo is attached to a pivot in the middle for the frame allowing it to flip around as needed.

The Inspiron Duo is on the Microsoft Store online for pre-order right now. The machine will cost you $549 for the netbook only and you can add Signature Premium to it for an additional $99. Signature Premium service is an entire year of VIP tech support and LoJack for laptops.

 

The machine uses a 10.1-inch LED backlit screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768. The CPU in the netbook is an Atom N550 at 1.5GHz and it has 2GB of RAM. The HDD inside the netbook is 320GB and the OS is Windows 7 Home Premium. Like most netbooks, the Duo lacks an optical drive. It has a battery good for four hours and packs in Bluetooth and WiFi among other things.
