You can scale individual apps. Wonder how bad it would look as 75% scaled

mini 9 | 2GB RAM | 16GB STEC SDD | BIOS A06, USB Legacy OFF | No Bluetooth | OSX 10.6.7 | NBI 0.8.5pre w/ ALC268 | Broadcom2Airport
MINI Cooper '02 | 1.6L | CVT | Moonroof | Red w/ White Stripes

Want the ALC268 mini 9 sound fix? Get it here

How hard is to add ram to the 10v ? Does it void the warranty (is it user serviceable ?).

Anyhow, generally I see that you are recommending the N270. Did anyone actually try to run XCode on these things ?
some people find it harder than others to remove/install memory in the 10v. i'll be doing said swap tonight granted i don't miss the UPS truck for the 3rd time!
no it does not void the warranty (unless you break something like tear a ribbon cable)

the reason i chose the 10v is the price ($210+tax w/ a 15% Dell Outlet coupon!) and allllll the help/info/experiences/etc i found on this site. there are tonnnnns of people succesfully running OS X on 10v's round here so i feel that even a newb like me will be able to get 10.6 running on my 10v too.

Wow, I never realized it's that cheap in the US. In EU I have to pay over $400. Actually even on the Dell website the 10v is $299 so you got a good deal there.

My quick thoughts to your original question:

Go for a 10v... the Mini 9 is just too small. And the 10v fills in for everything the 9 doesn't have, like a (almost) full sized keyboard, bigger screen, large hard drive, etc...

Dell Mini 10v | Intel Atom 1.6GHz | 2GB RAM | 120GB HDD | Bluetooth + Webcam | Mac OS X 10.6.1 | NetbookInstaller 0.8.2a
