Question Mini 10v (1011) end-of-lifed? - 03-25-2010, 08:26 PM

I just logged onto both the canadian and US dell websites, and I can no longer find any mention of the Mini 10v (1011). Can someone confirm that they will no longer be selling these?

there's a lengthy thread about this topic in the Dell Mini 10V forum (the one that is not OS based)

Long story short, you can still buy one if you click on a direct link (such as googling for the 10v and clicking on the "Shopping" link that points to the Dell site).

I just did that exact thing today and ordered one, should be shipping Apr 5.

So if the 10V is going away, what's the next highly hackintosh-able laptop?

nobody knows, a highly hackintoshed device doesn´t just show up. The hackintoshability (hey! probably a new word creation!!) depends on:

1. The hardware configuration (what network cards, chipsets etc is built in) If those components are also used/have been used in original Macs, it´s easier to modify the drivers for a hackintosh system. Others might me more complicated.

2. How many people (in forums like with the needed skills are working on that specific device, which depends on how many people own that device. A lot of people can afford a Dell 10v, it´s cheap. So you cannot expect an comparable number of people working on a 1500€ Laptop, than on the Dell 10v.

Short: I followed the community a little while now, and it turns out that the Asus 1201N and the HP mini 311 seem pretty cool to hackintosh. Not comparable to the 10v though, as you need to change the wlan-card to get wlan working, and installation process is a little more complicated than on the 10v.

Hope i helped!

But isn't there another netbook/notebook type following like we have here on the 10V?\

I might have to buy a spare and keep it in storage if this is the only device out there that performs this well.

Any thoughts?

You might also try the Dell Latitude 2100. Pretty much the same components in a bit more upscale shell. Should work about the same as the 10v, I think, though some of the more experienced users here may know different. You can even order it with the memory upgraded to 2 Gb and a touch screen if you like. Costs a few bucks more, but not terribly so.

Mini 10v|A04|N280|2GB|500 HDD|1510 WiFi|+BT|10.6.2/WIN XP sp3|NBI 0.8.3
27" iMac|2.8 i7|8GB|2 TB|10.6.2/WIN 7 Pro - Gorgeous!
