The most obvious design feature of the Dell Inspiron Duo netbook is the cool swiveling screen that the convertible netbook uses to go into tablet or netbook mode. When you have a device that has an interesting feature like that, you can bet that other companies will tray and make something similar. The little machine isn't pure duo knockoff though; it has some other elements to its design too.
The machine has a smallish 8.9-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1024 x 600. It also has a webcam for recording video, runs Windows 7, and has a 7.4V battery with 3000mAh of power. The little netbook also uses 1GB of RAM and has a 20GB HDD.
The brain of the machine is an Intel Atom N450 CPU. The hardware should add up to an average netbook computing experience with a screen that swivels for tablet use. The name of the netbook is the Netvertible. Other features include dual USB 2.0 ports, audio jacks for private listening, VGA out, and a SD card reader. Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.
