"It's a bit chunkier than the previous Mini 10, largely to incorporate a 6-cell battery into the chassis without having the hump out the back. That's a big leap forward..."
Actually, we find that the extended battery makes for a very nice HANDLE on our Mini 10v!
Also miss the point of making "Netbooks" Bigger, More Expensive, and with Less Battery Life - those are things I can already get in a Notebook
, along with a much nicer (ie: Larger, Higher Resolution) screen, better keyboard, and (hopefully) a nicer touchpad....
