Default Hello and a quick question! - 03-06-2011, 08:28 PM

Firstly let me introduce myself, I'm Rob. Just joined and after some advice i recently decided to have a go putting OSX 10.6.6 o my HP Pavillion and was successful (apart fro track pad scroll)! And am looking to get a netbook to do the same to (for traveling) Decided on a Mini 10 i think because of compatibility and build quality (have a streak and build quality is great so hope netbooks are).

First question what Mini 10 Model is most compatible with OSX? and were would be the best place/price to get one from? I'm in the UK! Hope someone can help.

Cheers

Rob

The Inspiron 1011 (aka Mini 10v) is the most compatible, though people are finding some success with the newer 1012. We have a whole section of the forum dedicated to Hackintoshing, so dive right in.

You might need to swap out the WiFi card on a 1018. See Mac OS X on the Mini 1018 and the sticky thread in that section on the 1012 which is similar.
