If one is interested to purchase Purple Netbook - would it still be a property of Purple Communications?

What kind of software/operating system, etc., are on the mini-notebooks?

It's call netbook. Not mini-notebook.

Good eyes!

The Dell Online Store: Build Your System

I found it for $399 but no WIFI N and multi-touchpad. Kind overprice from dell.com


I just shocked that Purple just copy image from dell then add purple logs. Why purple don't bother to make own the picture?

Very interesting...didn't think they would come out with a netbook. Too bad it doesn't run on Mac OS, so I'll pass.

It does include Wifi and comes with Windows XP with P3 software, no tax and free shipping for limited time. Why wait?

To be honest, this is stupid. HOVRS ripped you off 400 dollars Purple Netbook which it is not your, it is HOVRS' property.

Plus, they just branded the netbook with a LAME Purple STICKER over the dell logo..

You can buy a real netbook for 350 dollars from Dell.com and just download P3, and you just save yourself 50 bucks.

I hate when they won't say any specs because if we knew, we wouldnt buy it.

So, don't buy it. Plus, I dont like P3, I know it is in BEta but it gave me 2 times - BSOD.. my following specs are Core 2 Duo 3.7 Ghz, 4 GB, Vista Business, HD radeon 4850.

Yes, there is already WIFI N adapter USB but it looks more ugly and annoying to plug/unplug all times when you traveling. So built-in is better since there is many netbook come with WIFI N. My macbook is almost 2 years old and it come with Wifi N. (no, I don't update anything since.)

Wifi G is only 330 FT (indoor) and 128 Mbit/s
Wifi N is almost 950 FT (indoor) and 600 Mbit/s!!!

Wifi N is perfect for heavy download, share files, and long range like me.

I believe you missed my post that I found low price for netbook.

I wish Purple use newegg.com for next time.

There's a difference, if you BUY it is YOURS, if you are part of the beta testing group, now that's a different story.

In case you are wondering about the system's specifications :

The Purple Netbook is a fully functional mini laptop computer. Your Purple Netbook will have some or all of the following features.
- Approximately 9 to 10 inch wide screen
- Approximately 2 and 3 pounds
- Built in Memory card reader
- USB port(s) for flash drive
- Fully functional keyboard
- Built in web cam
- Built in Wireless modem for wireless (wifi) internet access
- Ethernet port for wired internet access
- Audio Out headphone jack
- Audio in microphone jack
- Built-in, replaceable, rechargeable battery
- AC Adaptor and power cord for charging the battery
- VGA out jack
- Windows operating system
- Basic productivity software, including word processing, spreadsheets, and presentation software.
- Web browser software such as Internet Explorer.

Such specs can be found in dell website:
Dell Mini 12 Laptop / Netbook

Click on "Tech Specs"
You can also check out the customer's review

BTW thechaostheory...the price is the same. But you will have to pay for shipping & handling in additions to taxes. It will get you $500, maybe more, maybe less. Our store, you don't pay for tax nor shipping.

I can buy notebook on newegg and it has no sale tax and cheaper shipping cost, such as $16 for 3 days or free in some cases.
