Is this a netbook that's a tablet or a tablet that's a netbook?

There's really no way to pound out a real presentation or write a report on a tablet. An onscreen keyboard just isn't capable of keeping up with a physical one. Dell's Inspiron duo is a netbook that can be flipped into a netbook or is it the other way around?

The Dell Inspiron duo uses a unique flip-hinge that transforms it into two modes — netbook and tablet mode. I like how Dell is trying to build a computer for those who want a netbook and a tablet, but this is a little on the chunky side when in tablet mode. I'd say this hybrid is a netbook first and a tablet second.

Specs are what you'd expect from a typical netbook these days: 10-inch screen, dual core Intel Atom 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM and a 250GB hard drive. It almost rivals our real notebook computers from five years back. You can buy the Dell Inspiron duo in the first week of December for $550. Are you sick of all the hybrid gadgets yet? It seems Dell isn't.
