Zino HD

I have had the Zino HD for a few months. The ati4330 graphics score a 5.9 on windows 7. While I am not a gamer the lowest powered ati dual core cpu is faster than I thought. I bought it on sale for $349.00, a real barging in my mind. I wish I had bought 2.Looks nice, quiet and the only thing I think should have been different is audio. In truth it's not a big deal to me. I dumped pay tv 2 years ago and can find a lot of content on the internet. Zino a 90(out of 100) Many nettops don;t have a dvd player. Personally I wouldn't buy one without the dvd player.

Dell Inspiron Zino HD

I like my Zino HD 400 would buy it again

There are in fact a Zino HD 300 and a Zino HD 400. I bought my Zino hd 400 on sale for $349.00

I use the hdmi to my tv which has a connection to my Dolby digital amp and I do get dolby digital.

True there is no separate connection except for stereo. The Amd X2 1.5 seems underpowered buts it not. The Amd 4330 graphics give a 5.9 for 3d in windows 7. I am not a big fan of Dell and I bought this for a home theater pc, now I wish I had bought two, one to replace my desktop.

Dell has to many different configurations and they do have sells. Mine was $178 less than the normal price on sale. It did come with a wired keyboard and mouse, not wireless as the article mentioned. I would give it 9 out of 10.

Scareware scumbags exploit 9/11

Does pondscum know its pondscum ?

These kinds of people are the scum of the earth with no dignity, morels or any kind of honesty.

What do they think about themselves? How do they look at themselves in the mirror.

They are in fact a human stain on this earth. We are not perfect by any means, but I would like to be able to look in myself and not just see only shame and disgust.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10v netbook

@ratbert

I have only looked at a couple of these netbooks so its hard to compare plus I am from the U.S so im not sure about pounds. I spent $329. for the acer one with free shipping and $300. plus $8.00 for the Dell 10v, but the acer has much better specs for the extra $21.00 dollars.If you can buy from Amazon the then compare the Asus and also the Samsung nc10. Too me the most important issues are hhd size and battery size and I would assume they have normal Led indicators for keyboard functions. Sometimes spending a little extra money is worth it. When I got my acer I called tech support about a questions and I got through in a couple minutes and they were very helpful.

When I call dell I am always transferred numerous times and they a very unhelpful.

The Asus looks good and I would buy it if I had the extra money.

Dell Mini 10v=JUNK

I have read several reviews about the dell mini 10v before I ordered it and not one said anything about the missing leds considered standard on any notebook or netbook. It is my opinion that dell cut every corner they could to make this netbook. I have read other people having problems with the power switch. Yes the dell is pretty compared to the acer one and does have a better keyboard but thats where the compassion ends in my mind. Xp probably cant even use the 1gb ram included but if you a different os that can use my ram you have to void the warranty ( im not sure but I would almost bet money it would.) Maybe mine was a lemon but it should not of left the factory and if you have ever delt with dell they are the absolute worst unless you have a business machine.

I felled to mention my 10v crashed constantly even after I flashed the new bios and there where 2 new bios update already meaning it was not ready to be sold.

I didnt mean to offend anyone but at least some reviews are more impressed with looks than function and Its a waste of time because there short on the facts. I like the the lan switch and light on the acer one . Not having the leds would be a deal breaker for me, some people like you dont care but its nice to now.The acer one has both a larger hdd and a larger battery capacity. I would be interested in seeing some more benchmarks. They are basically the same inside so they should have the same numbers.

FAIL

Dell Mini 10v=JUNK

What a poor review ! You failed as most do about the short comings off this pathetic pile of junk thats supposed to be a netbook. Did you not notice there are no leds? or that you have to push the power button 3 or 4 times to turn it on. I bought one and returned it the next day After 11 transfers with Dell crappy support team. I hard a hard time getting a usb flash drive in and it felt like something would break. The lan cable just falls out,it works fine on other computers. I unlocked both battery locks but could not get the battery out almost ripping my fingernail out. Because there are no leds the cap indicator is a crappy looking poorly made software icon. What happens when you change OS"s and you have no led to let you know its on. This netbook is not up to snuff or even close. There is no comparison in quality between the ACER ONE D150 AND the dell mini 10v.

If the acer one is a 10 the dell mini 10v is a -5. Save your money and look elsewhere you will be happy you did.
