When you look at netbooks like the MSI Wind and Acer Aspire One, it’s quite clear that they are going after the consumer market. While Dell already has the Inspiron Mini 9 for the masses, the computer maker is also making a subnotebook for corporate types in the form of the Dell Vostro A90.
This isn’t a completely new netbook. Instead, the Dell Vostro A90 is simply a mildly redesigned version of the existing Inspiron Mini 9. It’s still got the same 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, and 8.9-inch screen, but the outside is a little more conservative and business-like.
Strangely, the corporate netbook is being introduced to the Japanese market for $999. That’s pretty pricey for an otherwise mainstream subnotebook, wouldn’t you say?
