Question Single or Dual Core vs Mini 1010? - 05-10-2011, 05:41 PM

Hello all! I currently own a Mini 1010, and am looking to move up a "class" to the M101z. My question is, does the single-core, 2GB RAM version of the M101z offer a noticeable performance boost vs the 1010? Or would I have to go for the dual-core 4GB model to realize significant performance improvement? I've got my eye on one of each model in the Dell Outlet and basically am wondering if the dual-core model is worth the extra $80 or so.

the single core 1.7ghz amd with its graphics is an upgrade from my experiance. i have the m101z and havent looked back yet. only reason i would get rid of it is for when Dell sells the m102z in the US

Don't know what CPU comes in the M101z, but if it's not an Atom you will notice a difference. Although depending on the cost and if you can swing it, go for the dual core.

AMD, :barf:! JK, don't see any CPU options new so I'm guessing your looking in the outlet.
