Netbook with HD Video (HDMI and HDTV) - Dell Mini 10 (Inspiron 1010)

As far as I know the Dell Mini 10 (Inspiron 1010) the only 10-inch "HD/HDTV capable" netbook: the Mini 10 got an HDMI interface (instead of VGA) and an integrated HDTV digital TV receiver.
The best is that now the price of the Mini 10 dropped to $329.99 (down from $399.99)

Complete feature set of the
Dell Inspiron Mini 10 10.1-Inch Obsidian Black Netbook with Integrated TV Tuner - Up to 6 Hours 20 Minutes of Battery Life (Windows 7 Starter)
  • Processor: Atom 1.6GHz Intel Z530 (512K Cache, yes it isn't a typo! It isn't the N270.
  • 1GB DDR2 SDRAM Memory
  • 160GB Hard Drive
  • HDTV internal Digital TV Receiver (ATS), Mini TV Antenna
  • HDMI digital display out insteady of VGA (analog)!
  • 10.1-inch display, 1024x600
  • Integrated Intel 500 Media Accelerator
  • 1.3M Pixel Webcam
  • 6 Cell Battery
  • Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card (802.11g)
  • No Bluetooth, you can easy find a cheap Bluetooth dongle
  • Windows 7 Starter
The main reason for the significant price drop is the introduction of the new Atom N450 (1.66GHz Pineview) netbooks, for this reason OEMs and shops are trying to sell all remaining Atom N270/N280 netbooks.

All major netbook brands are already shipping or at least announced new models with the just released Intel Atom N450 (1,66GHz Pineview).
As far as I know only a couple of netbooks are really shipping with the new Atom N450
