It depends how much you want the other features of the 2 models, the processors are quite similiar, the Z530 is better at playing HD movies, but both suck at HD flash as it's currently processor intensive.

Is the HDMI port/HD screen a biggy for you? If so you may want the Mini 10, the 10v only has a VGA and you can't upgrade the screen.

You may want to consider the new Dell Mini 10, it has a newer chipset so in theory will be better than both the originals.


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

If you can wait a little longer, the 1012 mini has a better cpu, gpu, battery, and should soon be offered with the HDMI.

I couldn't wait.... and I have no HD screens at home.

Absolutely false. Can you overclock the N450? Can the GMA3150 accelerate H264 video and support DirectX10?

Sorry, I should have specified "newer" not better. I guess I was re-iterating what Dunhamzzz was saying.

the 1012 will never have HDMI, it only has VGA, just like you couldnt get HDMI on the 10v as an option you cant and will not be able to on the 1012 either..Dell for what ever reason decided to put VGA on the new one instead of HDMI...besides I think the 1012 is fugly...two tone color and all, only if you get white will it be one color then your palm rest is all black now...just cant win, I will stick to my 1010 all black and silver palm rest..which I happen to like....just my 0.02..

Didnt realize appearence made the netbook

If the OP is more interested in graphics, then they are looking at the wrong item. If the OP wants Horsepower, then they will need to be looking into ultra portables.

These are not cheap laptops... they are netbooks.
