Hello Everyone

I'am going to buy a 10v and set it up with OS X 10.6.1 and i don't know which options i should take. Here the points I'am not shure:
Display: HD 16:9 or normal?
Wireless: 1397 or 1510?
Battery: 3 or 6 cells? (is there a big difference?)

Thx for your help!

The Mini 10v does not have an HD screen option. Seems as if you are looking at a Mini 10, which will not work with OSX!

No. That would be the Mini 10. The 10v has the Atom N270 with GMA950 graphics.

The Z530 with GMA500 is the Mini 10

Grab the 6-cell battery if at all possible. For an extra $30, you double the battery life to the 6-hour range (YMMV depending on whether you are running wifi, etc). I'm on 10.6.1 with a 6-cell and it feels like I can go forever.

If you are not going to need Wireless-N then there is no point in getting the 1510...

I have not used the 1510 but it should work, in theory. I think users have reported success with it.

I use the standard 13xx wireless card
