Default Now that the decision has been made . . . - 10-05-2009, 03:09 PM

Now that the decision has been made to purchase a DM-10V (over a DM-9) for my high school daughter, I am now wanting some input on the OS. I use a DM-9 with SL 10.6.1, but there are some compromises, namely no microphone input. That is a bummer for Skypers and iChatters. I know that she needs a full-functioning machine (she is a Skyper) so is my understanding correct that the DM-10V is "fully functional" under 10.5.x and still progressing under 10..6.x?

Her mom thinks the DM-10V is a "bad idea" and I need to hand the kid something with very few, if any complaints. Mom sees me cursing the DM-9 from time to time, but I remind her that this is a "hobby" of mine, and I try everything *new* even if it gets me into trouble. For the kid, I want as little tinkering as possible.

Thanks for your input. Ice Blue DM-10V 160GB is on its way.

No mic input... I don't know the details w/ regards to 10v as I own a 9 but I always use a USB headset with mic, and that worked on my 9 even when it's speakers and mic weren't working.

Don't have Skype installed, but the Audio/Video settings tab in iChat gives me a cam-picture and a working mic (internal).
Even after sleep.

Been using Skype for video chat and audio chat as well as iChat on a 10v with no problems what so ever.
