    Michael, Please do a test trying to play a 720p H.264 file using VLC and Totem (Gstreamer and Xine).

    The Dell Mini 10 has a GMA 500 (=Poulsbo) afaik. If it wouldn't be for that it would be pretty much the perfect netbook.
    Indeed, but there is still hope Intel will fix this situation in the future.

    I hope NVIDIA ION plays well, too.

    Hooray for sticking with 8.04. Nothing wrong with that.

    It's a shame Intel won't support Poulsbo properly on Linux, it's a great chipset.

    Phoronix: Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Netbook

    While there are many netbooks on the market from a variety of different vendors, for the most part they are composed of the same hardware. They generally carry an Intel Atom processor with a solid-state drive or hard drive, 1GB or so of memory, and an 8" to 10" screen. One area though where these netbooks can differentiate is with the operating system. While Microsoft's Windows XP continues to be used on a large number of netbook computers, when it comes to those vendors deploying Linux each usually has a slightly different flavor. ASUS prefers a spin of Xandros on their Eee PC, there is Linpus, gOS, and many others are out there. When it comes to Dell with their popular Inspiron Mini 9 netbook, they happen to be using Ubuntu but with a few modifications. In preparations for an article later this week where we will be extensively looking at Ubuntu's netbook performance, in this article we are taking a closer look at Dell's Inspiron Mini 9.
