I'm looking to buy a Mini 10v with the below specs and would like to attempt the OSX install.

Will this work with the N280, or just the N270?

I'm looking at these specs - any input?

I have been away from the forum for a good while (work interferes with fun stuff again,) so I hope you have a working McDell Mini by now. For what it is worth at this late date, I started with the config you listed, loaded OSX, and then started upgrading (RAM, HD.) I am replying from that machine now. I hope you are enjoying the Mini by now. Happy New Year!
