The Dell Mini 12 had already been quietly discontinued from a number of countries (including the UK). It’s taken a couple of months, but it seems that Dell US has also pulled the plug on its 12.1-inch ‘netbook’.
The Dell Mini 12 has been widely expected to be replaced by an 11.6-inch CULV-based ultra-thin, although there’s been no new information on this forthcoming. The rumoured model, codenamed ‘Argos’, will use Intel’s Celeron ULV platform, have 2GB RAM and hard drive storage between 160GB and 250GB. It will come with a 1366 x 768 resolution display and will be priced from $499 according to a leak.
The exit of the Mini 12 from the US may mean this new model is just around the corner. We’ll keep you updated.
