I wouldn't want to give up the internal WiFi, but if you mainly use the Mini with 3G wireless or are willing to use a USB WiFi adapter, then a Broadcom Crystal card might be a worthwhile upgrade.
Also, here's an article that addresses the Broadcom Crystal decoder and Flash. Doesn't necessarily sound awesome now, but software and driver improvements might make it better in the future.

I've been researching the Broadcom HD accelerator, and came across a few articles where someone installed a second MiniPCI connector in a Samsung NC10 and got the HD card working. He put the WiFi card in the 3G slot, and the HD card in the WiFi slot, since the WiFi card will work in either, but the HD card needs the full MiniPCI connection set to work.
Try it out, I'm interested to see if it works. I'm thinking of getting a cheap A90 and installing a HD card, just to play around with.

And I play with my girlfriend's Mini 10v ^_^.
Interested in using MATLAB on the Mini 10v? Check out my benchmarks!
