I have had my Dell mini 10v for 3 weeks now. I have downloaded the necessary programs off the internet, open office and Firefox, and loaded my music and pictures using my external hard drive, so I have not needed an external DVD drive. I am very happy with the keyboard (it is much nicer than the Acer I tried). It is an adequate size and I quickly became accustomed to using it. All of the buttons are in the right places and I am able to type almost as well as I can on my 15 inch laptop. The touch-pad is different than most of the netbooks out there but that is part of what attracted me to the Dell. I read many reviews that questioned the touch-pad but when I tried all the different brands(Acer, HP, Asus) in person I found that it was one of the biggest and that I didn't mind the integrated buttons and liked it better than the hp option of putting the buttons on the sides. Sometimes it does think I am trying to scroll when I click but I very rarely want to scroll so I will likely turn the scroll function off. So far the battery life of the 6 cell battery has been adequate. When running on battery with the screen turned all the way down I am getting about 6.5 hours which is less than advertised but is more than enough for me. I also like the power adapter. It is one piece and is able to plug into a surge protector and only takes up one spot which is nice. The only real negative right now is that it gets hot, hotter than my laptop and that upgrading the ram is not a task that I will be able to do on my own because I do not feel comfortable taking apart the entire computer and there is no access panel. Windows 7 starter is working well so far and I am planning on upgrading eventually. Overall I would purchase this netbook again but I do recommend that you go to a few stores and try all of the brands to determine if the keyboard and touch-pad are right for you.

I've been eyeing netbooks ever since my fiance got one. After working on it for a little while, I learned that certain features are more important for me than others. First, I needed a large keyboard, and second, I needed a long battery life.
In addition, I had a chance to mess around on my friends' Apple laptops, which are superior to Windows when it comes to operating systems. But since Apple doesn't make netbooks, I gave Windows 7 a shot and was blown away by a product that felt like it was made right after a decade of messy messy upgrades to Windows 95. Windows 7 became the third important consideration.

This laptop has it all for me. Love the keyboard (great for a touch-typist like me); the battery is long and sticks DOWN (can't believe it took years for laptop firms to figure out a way to fit a larger battery in while helping cool down the processor); and Windows 7 works like a charm.

I considered upgrading from the starter version, but after some research, I realized that there really is no reason for me. Upgrading provides features I would never use. Plus, the Starter version works faster and seems to really be designed for netbooks. It's an eye-candy; the battery delivers (feels good to see "75% left (5hr 45m)" or around there); and I did not need to relearn typing.

The drawbacks compared to other netbooks: the larger battery also makes it a bit heavier; some software is incompatible with Windows 7; and the ac adapter is larger on the end rather than having a hub in the middle of the wire (this might get in the way when plugging it in in class); finally, I've dealt with Dell on the phone before, and it can be hit or miss. The communication is not easy, since all of the customer service is abroad.

I bought this laptop when the description indicated 2 GB upgradable. I called Dell and it turns out that you would have to send the netbook to Dell to upgrade the memory at the cost of more then what you paid for the netbook. Amazon has started indicating this on some netbooks, but as of this writing is does not specifically state that the memory is not user upgradable. And yes, you will need 2 gig of mem with Win 7.

Otherwise, the netbook was outstanding. One last comment, Dell indicated that the memory could not be user upgradable when shipped with Win XP as per Microsoft's policy. Apparently in order for an OEM to continue using pre-loaded XP, they cannot offer more then 1 gig of mem!

I got this Christmas Eve and have used it almost every waking moment, hahaha. My family live in Australia and Spain so i am up at 4am (Mountain Time) using MSN Messenger so we can chat via webcam. That's the only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is because unless you are flooded by surrounding light it is very hard to see you (or others to see you)because it looks so dark, but if your at an internet cafe or out and about using the webcam you should be seen well with lots of natural light.

I put on office 2007 because i had it laying around at home and like it, i also added my various craft software and copied all my 2009 photos to it via our 17" laptop's CD drive. I downloaded Firefox and the free AVG Ati-Virus software also. If you want a nice computer to go surfing the web on and doing basic office tasks on then this is a great buy. I love it. I got the black one and finger prints if your a picky person will drive you crazy with this color, so i bought a Netbook mini skin decal sticker to cover it the deigns they have are awesome, and also bought the Sumo Netbook sleeve for it so i can carry it around in my bag with out it getting all dinged up. So far i have used it unplugged for 9 hours and even then i still had time left after i plugged it back in. As i said if you want something extremely light weight and portable that you can surf the web on and do basic office stuff on then this is an awesome buy.
