I have ~20 years experience with PC/Windows, having built/rebuilt multiple systems, but have absolutely zero Mac knowledge or experience. I would really like to get into the Mac world, but having just started paying college tuition for my first child, I find buying a Mac off of the shelf a little pricey at the moment. I am planning on a netbook soon, and see this as an opportunity to get into the Mac business a bit more cheaply. Having read through many of the threads on the forum relative to OSx and the Mini 9, these questions come to mind.
1. Is it reasonable for someone with no Mac knowledge to attempt a Dellintosh/Hackintosh conversion?
2. Most of the "How to's" refer to the Mini 10v with an SSD
. Is the process essentially the same with the 120 or 160Gb HD?
