Iâ€™ll close with this. In the near future my colleague Lionel will post a â€śDummyâ€™s Guide to the Atom Processorâ€ť as there are two versions out there: the Zxxx series (a.k.a. Silverthorne) and Nxxx series (a.k.a. Diamondville). In general, if you are planning on using a netbook device for video playback you should look for a device powered by the Z-series processor family, as it can handle hardware decode of 720p content and with Cyberlink codecs (which we do include on the Mini) can decode most of the more popular video formats. It also, surprisingly enough, contributes to better battery life because of lower power consumption. Both the Mini 10 and the Mini 12 are based on the Z-series Atom processors, and thatâ€™s all Iâ€™m going to say about that â€“ stay tuned for Lionelâ€™s post with more details.
Looks like Dell doesn't consider the OSX-capable diamondville Mini 10v as being HD worthy therefore won't offer the larger resolution HD display which falls in line as only being spec'ed at smaller 1024 x 576 screen in the Inspiron 1011 documentation...
