Default dell d420 v dell mini 10v - 09-24-2009, 02:44 PM

I currently have a dell mini 9 and am looking for something a little larger in both screensize and harddrive. Im looking to dual boot OSX and Windows. Not worried about the install of either OS just curious about overall performance.

any body? How does the Core Duo 1.2ghz processor compare to the atom. I'm looking for something that can run photoshop to do minor graphics on the go. I'm looking for overall better performance, which of the two should I go with

Hmm - Core Duo is a true dual core, but the Atom is clocked higher. They share a lot in common in their microarchitecture - both are derived from the Pentium M. I think the D420 would end up feeling faster than the 10v, but this is speculation. However, the D420 is stuck at 1GB RAM while the 10v can be upgraded to 2GB. That may make a bigger difference for graphics work.
