Unhappy Is it a Dell Mini 1010 or 1018? - 12-28-2010, 02:04 AM

Hi Guys,

You're all going to hate me but I've been back and forth on finding the right model for my Dell Mini basically all I know is that it comes with 10" screen on the left side I have a AC/USB/CardReader on the right I have USB/HDMI/Audio jack. The processor shows its a z520 with 1.3Ghz 1GB Ram and 160GB hard drive. I really need to know because I'm about to order a new casing for it its a shell type but I need the accurate model number or else the openings will not match with the inputs on the sides. I really hope someone can help out, thanks in advance and happy holidays!

Z-series CPU and HDMI mean 1010.

On the very first screen of BIOS (setup utility) you see Product Name: Inspiron <number>. This is not 100% reliable but hope nobody has messed with your bios (yet) .

as reflex said above, if it has the z520 processor and an HDMI then it is definitely a other Mini but the 1010 has an HDMI or for that matter a 'z' series processor
