Dell launches Vostro A90 netbook

Written by test

The Inspiron Mini 9 in a new chassis?

Dell has launched a "new" netbook targeting business users which goes under the name of Vostro A90, although when you start looking at the specifications, it seems more like an Inspiron Mini 9, but with a higher price tag for less hardware.

The only difference we can tell between the two models is that the Vostro A90 seems to have its speakers located just below the screen, something the Inspiron Mini 9 doesn't have. The basic spec Vostro A90 comes with the Atom N270 CPU, the 945GSE chipset, 512MB of RAM (yes you read that right), an 8GB SSD, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 (although it's listed as an option) a 0.3 Megapixel webcam and a 4-cell battery. The slightly more upmarket model comes with 1GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD.

The basic Vostro A90 is listed at US$349 (€265/£234) plus tax and shipping, with the "high-end" model going for US$424 (€322/£284). An Inspiron Mini 9 with the same features as the top end Vostro A90 would set you back US$374 (€284/£250), while a basic model only costs $299 (€227/£200), although this doesn't include Bluetooth or a webcam. We've got a hard time seeing how Dell will sell many Vostro A90's at these prices, especially considering that they're competing with themselves.
