This post is much appreciated!

Any recommendations regarding 11z customization?
Go for the dual-core processor option (the SU4100, I believe). MATLAB is multi-core aware and you can leverage that to make your code run faster. With earlier versions you had to manually use parfor loops (in place of regular for loops) to iterate through with multiple workers, but later versions (R2009 and above) automatically assign multiple workers in regular for loops (as long as the iterations are independent of each other).

Aside from that, get as much memory as possible. MATLAB loves memory.

Sold my Mini 9 for a larger netbook, one that's easier on my wrists and hands.
Current Machine: 2010 MacBook Pro 13", 2.4 GHz C2D, 4GB RAM, Win7 Pro x64/OS X 10.6.3

And I play with my girlfriend's Mini 10v ^_^.

Interested in using MATLAB on the Mini 10v? Check out my benchmarks!
