Daily deal – Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Netbook for $199

It was less than a week ago when I posted about the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 hitting the magically low price of $249. A lot can change in just a week, because that very same machine dropped another $50, and is now available for just $199.

As part of the Dell Presidents day deals, your $199 will get you the Inspiron Mini 9 with a 1.6GHz processor, 512MB of memory and 4GB of storage. The machine runs Ubuntu Linux, which includes most of the basic applications you might need on the road.

Just to be clear – this is the lowest possible configuration Dell sells in this model, so don’t purchase it expecting to get yourself a multimedia powerhouse.

The $199 price means you can buy the machine in any color you want, as long as it is black. Different colors will cost an additional $30.
