That's cheaper than the refebs are on the Dell outlet site !! That's a first !
Are you sure this is the Mini 10 and not the 9? I read that the 10 does not have an SSD, nor does it have the N270 processor. Strange :thinking:
If its anything like the M9 then this is a steal :thumbsup: £189.00

This is the new verison of the Mini 10, hence the 10v. This version of the 10 does allow the user to upgrade the ram, unlike the old 10 where it was hard-soldered, BUT the netbook needs to be opened up almost completely as there is no easy access hatch like on the 9.
Dell has extended its Inspiron Mini series with the launch of the new Mini 10v, described as a lower-cost configuration of its Mini 10 sibling.

Launching in six colours to help appeal to the young 'uns, the 10v costs from £199 including VAT and delivery.

With a 92% of full-size keyboard, spec for the 10v as revealed by Dell is 120GB or 160GB hard drives or a 8GB or 16GB solid state drives, it comes with XP or Ubuntu, offers 1GB RAM, webcam and Bluetooth.
This is a pretty good deal for the mini 10v, i just got my outlet mini 9. Not that there's anything wrong with ubuntu but i'm running Windows 7 RC on it at the moment it works perfectly, looks great and runs pretty quick on the 8GB SSD...massive improvement on vista and even better than that it's free until June 2010 from HERE
Good Price, but not necessarily a deal, as this is the RRP of the product
good price for 10" netbook, still that 3 cell battery is sucky.
Has an even lower screen res 1024x576
No LCD upgrade to 720p for this model? That's what I was interested in, makes a netbook so much more usable.

Also only a 3 cell to power a 10" screen, vs the Mini9's 4 cell on a 9".
what gets me is how can people be stupid enough to go on ebay and bid more for these (and win/buy them) when the actual dell site sells them cheaper.

I bought a mini 9 of the dell site ages ago when i had a 10% discount code and got it for £179 delivered. my mate bought one a few months back of ebay for £225 (that he bidded on) and he was over the moon.

Was temepted but the 4 week wait put me off
I've got the Mini 10 with XP and the HD (1366x768) screen. I've used other netbooks with around 1024x600 resolution and it's just not high enough to view web pages properly. You constantly have to scroll down to view content on a web page.

The only downside is 3-cell battery which is pretty rubbish in comparision to the Samsung, Asus and Acer equivalents. I'm lucky to get 3 hours from it.

Saying all that, the Mini 10 (and 10v) is a nice looking, small and light netbook and the keyboard is great for such a small device. £199 for the Ubuntu version is good price...if you are happy with the screen resolution.
Note that this version (10v) does NOT have a HDMI out, just VGA.

/put me off, but perhaps I'm picky.
good price voted hot.

ubuntu linux is so much better than the usual crap they put on netbooks.

It is a really good linux distribution, I was happily using it on my mini 9 till I needed to update the firmware on my Parrot car kit. Wish so many apps didn't rely on Windows :roll:. Another mention to putting Windows 7 on, really nice looking compared with XP, really easy to run compared with Vista :thumbsup:
Voted hot. I saw one of these the other day and it's gorgeous - similar in design to the HP Mini netbooks. I only wish they'd give the option for a 6-cell battery!

I bought an eee901 off Ebay for 165 quid yesterday mainly because it's small, has SSD rather than HD and comes with a 6-cell as standard, (not one of these huge batteries that stick out the bottom of the case).
This is a nice looking laptop and better than the equivalent Acers Aspire One's

But as said it is a lower spec 10

Here are the comparisons

Still good if 8Gb is enough
... also run OSX ;) ...
I'm running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 on my Acer Aspire One and it runs perfectly....highly recommend it! My mobile broadband dongle and Sony Ericsson phone modem both connected to the net without the need for additional drivers. Also nice that the layout is optimised for a small screen. Firefox needs to be tweaked slightly to give you more space on the screen.

Nice overview can be found here:
... also run OSX ;) ...

The Mini 10 is not as compatable with OSX as the Mini 9 because of the different graphics chipset, unfortunately.

edit: wait, this is the Mini 10v... might be more compatable if they've changed it?
Wish it had 6-cell...
I bought this which is a really good spec for the price;

Screen size: 9 inches Memory (RAM):
1024 MB Storage (hard drive):
160 GB Operating system: Microsoft Windows XP Shared graphics:
Intel 945SGM
