Default Question about the mini 10v screen - 08-31-2009, 06:38 PM

I am looking to get a mini 10v netbook but one thing has been bothering me. I cannot find a definite answer anywhere to my question. Do these netbooks come with an LED backlit screen or is that an option that only lies on the mini 10. Thanks!

I think it is LED... the display instantly brightens after sleep, where with CCFL usually takes a second or two.

IIRC, the only netbook to have anything but a LED-backlit screen was the HP Mini-Note 2133, which had an incredibly weird 1280x768 resolution while being 8.9 inches across, and atrocious battery life. I don't think they make 10" panels that have CCFL backlights at all, and even if they did it would make no engineering or economical sense.
