This is my opinion on the subject, so take it for what it is worth :
The Mini 9 trackpad is better than the Mini 10v (those are the only 2 I have used). I prefer the buttons on the Mini 9 over the 10v because having the buttons under the trackpad can provide annoyances. Depending on which OS you are running, your experience with be different... because driver support can make the world of a difference.
As far as the keyboard goes... I would go with the 10v over the 9 any day, hands down. The 10v makes use of its slightly larger footprint and makes the keyboard leaps and bounds better over the Mini 9. I have used both the Mini 9 and 10v keyboards (used to have a Mini 9)... and the 10v is so much more comfortable and easy to type on! All of they keys are where they should be and my hands do not feel cramped when typing. I do not hit the wrong keys because they are so close together! The Mini 9 keyboard is bearable if you have to use it on a daily basis (you will eventually get used to it), but if you have the option I would stick to the 10v keyboard!
That being said, I would personally recommend a 10v... because the keyboard is more important to me than the trackpad. And the 10v keyboard being better than the 9's keyboard makes up for the crappier trackpad on the 10v
