Dell has added a few new options when it comes to the operating system on the Inspiron Mini 12. Previously the Mini 12 was available only with Windows Vista. Now, users can now also choose between Ubuntu 8.04.1 or Windows XP.
As for pricing, the Ubuntu based model begins at $499, and the Windows XP model begins at $549. Of course, either of those will increase depending on overall configuration. Some of the options that are available is an upgrade in processing power from the standard 1.33GHz Intel Atom processor to the 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor along with either a 40, 60, or 80GB hard drive. While XP is now an option, Windows Vista is still available and comes at the same price as the XP configuration.
