Default Which one Dell UK 9 or 10? Most Snow Leopard Compatible. - 09-12-2009, 07:43 AM

morning All. im after a dell mini for my GF for xmas. i want to have snow leopard for my primary and only os. i am familiar with hackintosh i have converted my Vaio VGN-A397XP to Run Leopard 10.5.8 and am Working on SL (nearly there) Looking through a few posts im confused on what is most compatible the mini 9 or 10? What would anyone suggest primarily on compatability with snow leopard? i will be buying from the UK Dell store. im no sure if these units are different from other regions or not? from what i remember the old mini 9 run leopard pretty well with little hassle.
p.s they only recently added the mini 9 back onto dell uk. was discontinued i think for a while.

thanks for you time and advice in advance.

Evo*

The Mini 10 is not OS X compatible. The Mini 10v is, with some limitations. The 9 is best if that's what you want. There should not be a regional issue.

Please visit the OS X section of our forum for much more information.

"The 9 is best if that's what you want."

I think the mini 10v is currently working better with 10.6 than the mini 9.

Plus it looks nicer and has a much better keyboard. <- Personal opinions!

I'll defer to someone who has actually done it. Just going on what I have read.
