Have you looked at the 11z? Stock $399 (-7% EPP discount) is a 1.3GHz Celeron and a GMA 4500MHD, 160GB SATA hard drive, and an 11.6" 1366x768, 720p screen. It has HDMI out and can handle games significantly better than any of the netbook/Atom-based Minis. It may not be for you, as it is a bit bigger (read: 1-2 inches wide and deep) than the 10" Minis. And if you don't mind dropping an extra $75, you can get a true-blue dual-core Pentium in it, and without the limitations of the GPU that the 10 offers with the Z5xx series dual-core Atoms. Plus the TDP of the Pentium is only 10W, and it's 64-bit.

That's my speel, I'm done. /rant

Cheers,
Charlie

P.S. No, I don't work for Dell :P

This is an interesting option I haven't considered yet.

Thanks for the replies. Low price point in the Outlet was key. I didn't want to pay more for the HD screen. I ended up going witht the 10v because I want the 2 GB or RAM. I found a good and cheap one in the outlet and it arrived on Friday. Hulu video is good at normal size, but when I go full screen, it can get choppy. I figure if it went all the way to HD full size, the playback has got to be worse. So, I'm sure both are good and I'm happy with what I got. It will fill my needs nicely. Thanks for your help.
