I just got the June 2010 issue of Consumer reports and there was a review and ratings of computers, including netbooks.
Surprisingly (to me anyway) the Mini 10V (Win XP) ranked second to last, and the Mini 10 (Win XP) ranked dead last 9out of 27 netbooks with a 10 inch screen). Interestingly, the Mini 10 was ranked number 8, but it does not say which OS they used to determine the ranking. I assume it was Ubuntu or Win 7, since I believe these are the only other OS offered from Dell.
I wonder where the Mini 10v with SL would have come in? My guess is if the Mini 10 was capable of an 8 spot, the Mini 10v with Mac OS would come in higher?
