I originally ordered the 10v but switched to the 10. Now I am not so sure if I should switch back. I am ordering a refurbished model from Dell. And I think I have till Monday to cancel my order and choose something else if needed.
So here is what I want and what I can afford. I want to stick near the $259 price point I am at. Right now I have ordered the 10 with 1.33GHz processor and a 6 cell battery with XP Home. If I go with a 10v, it will have the 1.6GHz processor, 3 cell battery and XP.
I want to use this in my room for surfing the net and watching movies/ tv shows I have saved on a networked drive. The videos are SD with bitrates around 2000kbps in mp4/ m4v format. The external hard drive is connected to a Apple Airport Extreme.
Now that I am realizing I may be able to turn it into a Hackintosh which will help me extend my fun with the netbook. I already have a Mac Pro and like OS X more then XP and I'd like to keep using Plex for my media stuff if possible. (Plex is similar to Windows Media Center) But I'd rather have a completely working system then a buggy one so maybe I just need to stick with XP?
Also, if I switch, I will lose the free shipping I received when I ordered yesterday. Making a switch will add $12 to my order and not worth it if the difference is minute. But maybe going with the 10v will get me a better solution if I want to install OS X and also upgrade to 2GB of RAM. I am just not sure if the 500 chipset is far better then the 950 in the 10v. So if you have any insight, please help! Loving the site btw! Glad I found it!!!
