i see. that makes me want this even more. im feeling so giddy right now, even though i have a max of $25. but i read this on another site after doing a "best netbook for hackintosh" google search.
Dell Mini 10v
Status: In production
For some time after release this Mini 9 replacement was held up by Mac driver difficulties. Now it works fairly well, and could serve as a replacement Mini 9 for some Hackintoshers.
What you get: In some ways, this is better than the Mini 9. It's a newer unit, updated to address some of the general population's broader problems with the Mini 9: The screen is slightly larger, and more importantly, the keyboard has some room to stretch. It's cheap—often cheaper than the a coveted used Mini 9—at about $300 new.
What you sacrifice: The Mini 10v is patchier than its predecessor across the board. The onboard microphone is difficult to get working, video drivers are still a little precarious, often causing crashes when external monitors are connected, and sleep and hibernation modes aren't very reliable, which is crucial for a totable netbook. If you're willing to bet on driver support improving, it's a prudent purchase. That's a big if, by the way.
so all the things in the sacrifice section are taken care of, based on WolfKeeper's last post?
EDIT: i read this on http://gizmodo.com/5325775/the-state...tbooks-to-hack

The gizmodo article you linked to was written last July, and things have moved on a lot since then.
Their guides are now way out of date also, and the other one you mention is very much abreviated.
The best guides can be found on this site, in the 'Guides' section, or on Mechdrew's associated site (he is a regular contributor on MyDellMini also) and can be found here.
Stick with MyDellMini, and you shouldn't go far wrong!
