The Dell Inspiron Mini 9 has triumphed in the Best For Easy Internet Access category in the Times recent netbook tests.

According to the newspaper, which awarded the device four stars out of a possible five, despite having a relatively low memory the machine's mobile broadband-enabling SIM card gives an uncomplicated connection to the internet.

The publication pointed to the offer from Vodafone, which invites customers to pay £25 per month for two years on a mobile broadband contract, with the laptop coming for free with the bundle.

"The Mini 9 is available as a standard netbook or with a Vodafone Sim-card slot secreted beneath the battery to give 3G broadband access without a USB dongle," the Times detailed.

Adding: "There was no speed advantage over a dongle, though having the 3G Sim card built in does make the machine far more compact."

Vodafone organised an online treasure hunt to promote its deals for the Dell Inspiron Mini 9, which also comes with Wi-Fi capability.
