Got an email from Dell New Zealand today, and in the email they were advertising the mini 1012 with a BLACK base.

Unfortunately, attachments are broken in the forum. Can you provide an external link?

Im wondering over this too.

When you order from Dell today, what do you get ? White or Black base ?

These images are from a local seller - not Dell.

Much nicer - the white really shows up every mark and scratch.

This is the model I have, any advice on getting a black 6 cell battery? Also is this an old model or are they still making it in black on the base?

just FYI...Be careful and make sure its a 1012, if its only pictures you are looking at make sure it has 3 USB's otherwise you may be looking at a 1018 (2 USB's)....

BTW: a while back I heard of some 1012's mainly in Europe that had black bases but none in the USA

A few other ways to tell...

1018 - 1 audio port
1 USB (next to VGA)
separate physical mouse buttons
speaker icons on F keys are orange (this could be different depending on country)


1012 - 2 audio ports
2 USB (next to VGA)
mouse buttons integrated with touchpad
