The quality and resolution of a netbook display is one of the major considerations when looking to buy a netbook, along with battery and keyboard in our opinion. The most common resolution found in 10-inch netbooks is 1024 x 600, however there are also a few that sport a 1024 x 576 resolution like the Dell Mini 10v.
This slight difference in vertical resolution can make a difference as much as two to three lines of text when browsing. The good news is that the Japanese Mini 10v SKU comes with 600 pixels of vertical resolution, rather than 576 pixels found in the UK, US and rest of Europe. At this point, it’s unknown whether other countries will this new display. We’ll keep our eyes open and let you know if they do.
