The Intel 5100 that you mentioned is available in full and half heights. I have the full height version in my Mini 9 and an older laptop. I have few complaints. It works well, and supports 5GHz N, unlike the cheapest N cards.
The Intel 5300 is similar, but faster, and wants a third antenna.
But since your 10v uses a half-height card (I believe this is correct and rrfranczak3's post agrees), you can use a newer Intel card, like the Intel 6200 that I have in my 1012. I have few complaints. It works well, and supports 5GHz N, unlike the cheapest N cards.
Chiefvalue seems to have a good price on the 6200 : $21 shipped (Chiefvalue is related to newegg).
The Intel 6300 is similar, but faster and wants a third antenna.

the 1510 is a good card, works well for me, I dont think that there is much difference between the 1510 and the newer 1520..maybe firmware or something, according to what I have read there were some improvements and fixes on the 1520 card, but I have had zero (0) issues/problems with my 1510 card.....either should be easy to install...
here is the link for the 1011 service manual in case you need it:
just look under "communication cards" then choose "wireless mini cards"
