Question Mini 10 or Mini 10v? - 06-17-2009, 02:50 PM

I am interested in the portability of the mini 10's for college. My question is which one to get the mini 10 or the mini 10 v. I want to run office on the computer that I get, is that recommended? Anything you suggest would help as I am trying to get plenty of feedback. Thanks!

Office should be fine on either one. The 10v can have memory added, the 10 cannot. The 10v is somewhat slimmer, but more expensive. Battery options vary.

The 10 uses a chipset that is tuned for video playback whereas the 10v has an overall better chipset, but will noticeably lag a bit for video.


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

Additionally if you ever get the bug to try out Apple OS X you can only do so on a 10v. Conversely if you need reasonable screen resolution the 10 is the way to go (w/ the upgraded screen.)

So I guess my next question is how would I make it into a "hackintosh" or how would i install OSX?

I run MS Office Professional 2007 on my Mini 10v and it works great. As for my experience with video, the 10v is hands down better with Ubuntu, XP, XP Pro and Windows 7. You can check my sig. for my opinion of the Mini 10.

I am hoping someone can answer this question. I understand that using the grey discs violates the EULA agreement but can you use the same instructions for installation using a grey disc?
