Just a short few days ago we posted about the new Dell Mini 10v netbook. The Dell Mini 10v, also known as the Dell Inspiron 1101 has now officially gone on sale on the Dell website for a great price of just $299.
The Dell Mini 10v, is cheaper than the original Dell Mini 10 by $100, making the 10v an extremely affordable netbook.
So why is the Dell Inspiron Mini 10v $100 cheaper than the Mini 10? Dell have swapped out the Z series CPU, in favor of the more common Intel Atom N270 CPU, and GMA 950 chipset with the GMA 500 chipset.
As the original GMA 950 has AVC and VC1 hardware acceleration, which the GMA 500 does not have, it might not handle 720p HD video so well.
So unless you want to playback a lot of 720p video, the new lower priced Dell Mini 10V seems to be a great, well priced 10.1-inch netbook.
