Interesting bits:
    -FANLESS
    -Rubberised case with two Kensington lock holes - can be used for carry strap
    -Gigabit Ethernet
    -Optional 2GB RAM
    -Optional matt touch screen
    -Currently 1024x576 :evil: but apparently being changed to 1024x600
    -Decent keyboard
    -Can be used as a set square

I think I want one.

It seems to be the same as mini 10 difference is only the design, touch screen and maybe price.

Would certainly take the design over the Mini 10 any day, and don't the Minis have fans/blowers?

Hasn't been the most highly publicised netbook but from what I can see, the Latitude 2100 has actually been available since around May and plenty of comments suggest it has a fan.

So is this an updated version or something?

Don't know, I took the Register Hardware reviewer's word for it when he said it was fanless...

Quote:
The square casing does have benefits, however. It has allowed Dell to fit ventilation grilles at the front and on the left side with the result that the fanless 2100 runs rather more coolly than its Inspiron Mini cousins. Secondly, by moving the vents from the underside of the chassis, the machine is supposedly more resilient to nearby liquid spills.


Plus it does make sense that a machine aimed at the education sector would have as few moving parts as possible.
