Dell has expanded its family of netbooks with the Inspiron Mini 10. The netbook range, which was initially launched last year with the Inspiron Mini 9 now features the 10.1in laptop that has an edge-to-edge widescreen display.

The netbook also benefits from a larger keyboard, which Dell says is 92 percent the size of a standard keyboard, as well as a multi-gesture touchpad to make navigation easy.
