Dell E - Instant On Success?

I don't know if I had talked about the Dell E here already.

It's one more "netbook" that will have to fight its way through the growing armada of Eee PCs, Aspire One's, Wind's, and all the other low cost netbooks out there.

However, there are a few things that might help this small Dell make all the difference.

On the hardware front, things are evenly matched: an Intel Atom @ 1.6Ghz, 8.9" LCD (1024x600), 3x USB, SSD, webcam, wifi, etc.

However, Dell was smart enough to include something the Eee PC should have done from the start (especially considering the close ties Asus has with Splashtop) an Instant On embedded Linux Distro.

There's not much information about what "splashtop-lookalike" Dell will be using in their Dell E, but this will certainly prove to be a strategic step into winning a lot of customers.

That and... its price!
The Dell E will be available soon, for just $299 ($100 less than the Aspire One.)
