The first batch of 10v's had the 1024x576 screen resolution. This was later changed to the 'standard' 1024x600. However, even thought the resolution of the LCD changed the physical dimensions did not which meant that 600 pixels had to be crammed into the same space as 576 which resulted in non-square pixels on the 1024x600 screens (see this thread - 10v 1024x600 display is squished; pixels not square).
I have one of the 1024x576 10v's and I dont find it a problem, in fact it is better in some cases (specifically video) as it has a perfect 16:9 aspect ratio :-)

If you're not sure if the screen is actually 576 or 600 px tall, check the screen's EDID. The EDID should contain the actual native resolution.
It should also be possible to tell the native resolution by eye. Because running non-native resolution should result in aliasing on diagonal lines.
