The Dell Inspiron Duo is a Windows alternative to the iPad. It’s a 10-inch screen tablet netbook that can transform from tablet to touchscreen netbook, and comes with a custom interface layered on top of Windows 7, which personalizes the tablet and makes for an easier Mac-like experience.
A JBL speaker dock is optional, and turns the Inspiron Duo into a clock radio/media player, cradling it in its tablet mode. Dell will start shipping it in December, with a price of $549, and $649 together with the dock. It’s got a 1.5GHz dual-core Atom processor, 2GB of RAM and a Crystal HD graphics card from Broadcom, which makes it capable of playing 1080p video. It also has a 250GB hard drive.
