Dell Launches Nickelodeon Edition Netbooks

Wednesday, August 12, 2009 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Dell made a really cool announcement yesterday.

“If you've got young kids at home like I do, you know the answer to that question is the one and only SpongeBob SquarePants. I'm betting you can probably sing the rest of the theme song as well. Why am I talking about this? Because we're partnering with Nickelodeon,, Walmart and others to introduce a netbook for kids.

It's or first product that focused on kids. Since it's a netbook that weighs less than three pounds, it's easy for kids to bring it from room to room or in the car during a road trip. From a spec standpoint, the Nickelodeon edition is based on our popular Inspiron Mini 10v. Kids (or their parents) will be able to choose from three different Design Studio designs: SpongeBob, iCarly or Green Slime (pictured below—click image to see a larger version). “



And of course Stardock partnered with them to create the interface and skins!

Okay, so the fact that this happened isn't all that amazing.  What is amazing is that Nickelodeon is still around and that Dell sees this as a viable customer base.  Now that's pretty amazing.

So who will be buying these netbooks?

I would have purchased one just because it looks like fun but I already picked up a Dell Netbook about a month ago so I'll have to hold off. Looks great though!

Great work, SD! When I see this I think of all the kiddies who'll be putting a foot higher on the ladder of education with the help of this netbook. I love it, and I'm so proud to have supported one of the corporations which is involved in making this beauty a tasty piece of eye candy!

Congrats on your participating in a truly worthy project! Also...makes me wonder with which other wonderful projects you guys are linked.

forlan2074, this site is awesome for providing Windows skins.

However you will not find the type of skins you put on the outside of your netbook here.
