not to clear how this will fair as it hasn't even been reviewed by jkk yet but i have a mini 9 which is bloody brilliant for its build quality and is really fun and usable (yes the ubuntu version).
They have addressed the keyboard issues with this model and also given it a 160gb hard drive.
I think this could take the mantle of the nc10 as the new king of netbooks due to the presence of a hdmi port!

When it comes down to NC10 price, maybe.

Bloody expensive. This needs to come down to £250 with Linux or £290 with XP.
Avoid at this price. Voted cold.

I'm seriously tempted! But I'll wait until Dell release official prices. Engadget loved it when they had a brief play.

not sure why everyone loves the '9 tbh - it feels cheap and tacky and is overpriced, too...

way way way overpriced - was watching CNN a couple of days ago and they had an Intel spokeman on saying netbooks should be no more than $300 (approx £220 in todays sterling) for them to be competitive, on the display in from of them was the Samsung NC10, Toshiba NB100, and the Dell mini 10? so im assuming the reference was to them!

Dell at £349 or Acer for £150 Hmmm, not a very Hot bargain.

I don't see the benefit of HDMI on something that will struggle playing 720!

Don't get me wrong it is a nice unit, but if I wanted a tiny screen I would either get the Acer or if I wanted to pay a lot more then I would have to go for the gorgeous new Sony. No way that I can run to £800 though :oops:

Weird, was certain I'd seen these for £200 on HDUK ...

screen res is allegedly either 1280x720 or 1366x768 so will have no bother resolution wise
whether the thing is capable of non juddery playback is another matter ... enfgadget seemed
to love it tho.

I think we do!!

Humble pie time. Apolgies to those concerned. I must get my new glasses, thought we were looking at the Mini 9 not the 10.

not voting either way as it's just the standard price, great if you want to be one of the first mini 10 owners though!

It is not the screen res that is the problem, the Atom just doesn't have enough grunt to play HD video. It can just about cope with 720 (with the odd shudder, it depends on the content and encoding). Boderline perfomance so the HDMI is not really a bonus.

this is what you saw previously:

I have the mini 9 and it's a fantastic machine, especially as it has an ssd instead of a hdd - it will be cheap 'n' easy to upgrade with a 256gb runcore ssd in a year or so. I would recomend getting one of them over the £150 acer anyday.

Was a tad surprised to see this bomb soo badly but i guess people are fed up with seeing the same old specs across all the brands. this is largly due to microsoft not allowing anyone to put ssd's larger than 16gb or hdd's larger than 160gb in any netbooks it is run on.

It is not overpriced at all at £190, it's a peach of a machine and is solidly built. Ive experienced the acer netbooks and the eee ones and therye flimsy at best. I get what you say about the smoothness and shinyness of the bezel and area beneath the keyboard but that's minors.
The machine as a whole kicks proverbial....

From the 9 i used it's much worse feel wise than my eee - or an Acer or Samsung..
