Default mini 1010 video display - 01-21-2010, 12:28 AM


I am looking to buy a Dell Mini 1010 off of Dell's outlet site and am confused a bit about the different video displays. It seems there are three or 4 different ones.

- 10.1 inch Widescreen Display (1024x600)
- 10.1 inch WideScreen True Life Laptop Screen (1024x576)
- 10.1 inch HD WideScreen Glossy Laptop Screen (1366x768)

I'm wanting a 1010 with the video tuner. The video tuner only seems available with the 1024x576 display.

What are the pros/cons to each display?

I have the HD Display and can only recommend it!

With the regular display you will have to scroll a lot more then with the HD. Most websites these days are optimized for display heights of at least 800 pixels. The HD Display has over 150 dpi, so any menu-items will be rather small. If you don't mind that, you will like the HD display!

I had been waiting a while to register and post here because I wasn't sure how long the ownership of my Mini10 was gonna be. I had the 1024x576 display and when it came to putting together schematics for circuits in Eagle and even browsing web sites I started getting frustrated having to scroll around all the time so thought of getting rid of it.

I ordered an SXGA(HD) LCD for $50 on eBay and it came in yesterday and got installed last night. It is a night and day difference! I HIGHLY recommend the HD display. It doesn't sound like it but 1366x768 makes a HUGE difference in how usable this little thing is. You won't regret the tuner near as much as you'd regret the HD display.
