Ok, then yes that should work. However this is still a low-end device so the quality of the video probably won't be that great. Whether it's acceptable depends on the individual user and what they can deal with.

So can some tell me why that vga-s-video cable pictured at the beginning of this forum doesn't work for the dell mini? Why does that cable even exist?

If what people are say is true, that a cheap cable like that won't work, than I'm very disappointed. I just want (svideo) TV-out to my regular old TV. I don't need hdmi or anything fancy like that. Whats the cheapest solution? can any put some links up for the cheapest vga-to- svideo solution?

I bought one. It works fine. The only unusual thing about it is that the VGA out is clean, while the S-video out is slightly lesser quality. It should be the other way around. That said, it is definitely worth the price. I happened to buy it from monoprice, without issue.
